Hosted by POST + Melissa Anderson, from Bringing the Happy
Sunday, September 15th at: 12pm-1pm, 1pm-2pm or 2pm-3pm
This workshop is a special feature during TEXTILE TAKEOVER, our annual indoor/outdoor weekend long event! The weekend will be full of demonstrations, hands-on workshops, and craft activities to compliment an outdoor art/craft fair. We will be harvesting plants from the dye garden and hosting an array of fashion and fibers-focused classes in the studios.
Learn all about sophisticated splatters, selecting interesting color combinations and a new way to Bring the Happy to your clothing.
This is a one hour make and take! Choose your preferred time slot, either: 12pm to 1pm, 1pm to 2pm or 2pm to 3pm. Melissa will be teaching the techniques needed for painting on clothing. Everyone will paint on 100% cotton t-shirts and participants are invited to bring in a piece of their own clothing to paint. Got a stain on your favourite pair of white denim pants that are not getting enough love? Let’s paint ‘em! We just ask that you stick to light-colored cotton fabrics. Whites and creams work best for this class, but feel free to bring in something even if you’re unsure.
Everyone will take home one colourfully painted t-shirt along with the knowledge and inspiration to reinvigorate and create your own one-of-a-kind wardrobe.
Tee Shirt Details:
Unisex, 100% Cotton, White Tee Shirt by Bella + Canvas, Made in California
Available Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL
Aprons will be provided, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. The paint will stain your clothing!
