Trendy tees can cost $30 or more, but you can make them for a fraction of that! In this hands-on class, you’ll use a different technique each day to create a graphic tee that you’ll take home. By the end of the week, you’ll have a distressed tee, a selfie tee, an emoji tee, and a geometric tee—plus the skills needed to make more. You can create a whole new wardrobe for yourself, family, and friends—or create your own line of custom t-shirts. Mick will discuss how to do so on a budget. Camp fee includes four 100%-cotton t-shirts plus all materials. Register no later than June 15  and indicate your t-shirt size. Never buy department store tees again!
