Upcycled and Reconstructed T-Shirts and Other Clothing

Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013

1:00 – 4:30

@ Beach Art Center

Minimum 5 students – maximum 10 students

$40 + $10 (BAC rental) = $50

We will go through the whole process of taking a tee shirt and

  1. cutting it apart

  2. discharging it with Publix Lemon Fresh Dishwashing Gel

Using Antichlor to stop the chlorine

  1. Screenprinting on it with fabric paint

  2. Ideas for how to sew it back together into shirts, scarves, purses…

I will bring my thermofax screens for everyone to use.  I will also talk about how I come up with the designs for my screens.  

You bring:

  1. 100% cotton tee shirts to work on.  Having something printed on the front is okay.

  2. Good plastic gloves (Not the kind made of plastic wrap)

  3. Scissors

  4. Enough plastic bags to carry your wet tee shirts home in.  We will rinse them out but you need to wash them when you get home.

  5. Wear old clothes because we will be wet, bleachy and outside.

I will bring some of the other clothing that I have repurposed and talk about the process.
