Arts & DIY
In need of a band tee? Have you always wanted to wear your own art? One Strange Bird’s Print Your Own T-Shirt class will teach you to design and print your own apparel using a stenciled process with silkscreen.
Take your doodle to a new level or print puns on a purse. Learn how to create creative stencils to add exciting visual elements to a t-shirt, tote, or yard of fabric. Once you have learned the process, come back for open studio hours to create your own line of designs.
