Make one-of-a-kind holiday gifts for family and friends! Using basic drawing and stenciling techniques, students will learn to screen print on small textile objects of their choice, like tea towels, aprons, pillowcases or tote bags.
Participants are encouraged to bring a small textile object to print their own designs on. Students will utilize basic geometric forms and line work that can be repeatedly printed on these objects to make original presents for friends, family and loved ones.
We will provide basic paper, bring any special paper or small textile object if you want to make it really special!
Price: $55.00 (materials included)
