Workshop: T-shirt printing
Design and print your own tee to keep. In this workshop we will create unique designs using a fabric stencil printing technique and textile medium paints. It is a fun way to personalise an otherwise plain cotton T-shirt into something truly unique. Once fully dried and washed the first time as per guidelines your T-shirt can then be worn and washed as normal. You will be taught the skills needed to continue to make your own at home using an inexpensive method and readily available materials.
