Graffiti-Style Art on T-Shirts and Bags – July 27th

Your mission: in two hours, completely cover a white t-shirt, draw-string or tote bag with graffiti style art. We’ll show you how to turn your drawings and doodles into cool designs, using masking techniques, spray paint (non-aerosol) and fabric markers. Although aprons will be available, we will be using permanent fabric paints and pens – we recommend that you don’t wear anything too precious to the workshop, just in case!
