Silk Screening Genius PEACH BERSERK is doing a TRUNK SHOW at FLOCK Feb 2nd 12-5!

Many of you may know Kingi’s iconic shop Peach Berserk in downtown Toronto!  I know that I have personally gawked at the amazing creative genius’s work and hit the changeroom in her shop!

So – it is with extra excitement that I announce that Kingi is coming to Ottawa!  She’s doing an impromptu TRUNK SHOW in the Flock Boutique gallery space on February 2nd from 12-5pm!

At the same time she will also be running one of her fabulous silk-screening workshops in our basement – spaces are limited, see info below for how to register.

On Saturday during the trunk show we will also be doing giveaways and other fun things, so make sure to mark it on your calendar and head down to Wellington West to check out the most amazing extreme silkscreened dresses and accessories on the planet!

Here’s what Kingi’s up to in her own words:

“We are packing up our most gorgeous new silk party dresses (hoodies, cotton dresses and silk skirts too) and taking them on the road!

Trunk Show details:

I will be showing new, crazy, colourful, printed party dresses!  My swatch books (with 150 of Peach Berserk’s prints!) will be on hand, so you can create with me a gorgeous, custom designed Peachy dress of your dreams (in your choice of style and silk colours)!

It is the perfect opportunity to order a special dress for an upcoming party, prom, graduation, wedding ……whatever event is special to you!  And, I will be bringing a selection of super cute printed hoodies, skirts, cotton dresses, silk scarves and more!

 

Screen Printing Workshop Details:

At the Trunk Show venue, we are teaching a silkscreen workshop!  REGISTER NOW FOR THE WORKSHOP (and email us your artwork by January 30th), and we will photoshop the artwork to make it silkscreenable, and shoot it on an individual screen!  (artwork can be photos, drawings, text, found images, or any combination -to fill a silkscreen space of 22”X17”)

We will bring your custom-made screen to the Trunk Show, where you can use our print-tables and paints to print your designs! All inks, fabric, a t-shirt, and our Silkscreen book/DVD are included.

Cost $89 (to keep the silkscreen frame with your images on it will be an additional $29)

Students in the workshop will learn:

How the screens are made

Different, interesting ways to create a silkscreen design

How to print t-shirts and fabric, one colour and multi colour prints.

How to source materials and set up an affordable studio at home (silkscreen studio set packages are available for purchase as well – ask us for details)!

28 Days of Giveaways!

We’ll be the first to admit that no matter how much we love this city, the dead of winter in Ottawa can feel rather bleak and uninspiring.

This winter, Christina and I are determined to keep up our creative spirit, snow or no snow – minus 10 or minus 40.  Are you with us? Cause we have a plan!

How about an entire month of great giveaways from your favourite Canadian designers? That’s sure to put a bit of a bounce in your step en route to the office right? Sure to make your lunch hour a bit more fun?

We think it might. (-;

So, we asked our designers if any of them might be interested in giving something away and we got bombarded with emails back!  Our fab designers are all over it!

Here’s a sneak peek: We’ll be giving away a felted merino wool hat by Julie Sinden, a drape dress by Nude and pair of lovely sterling silver earrings by shop fave Jessie Turner…and that only covers 3 days of our big contest! (-:

The giveaway begins on February 1st, but now would be a good time to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
