WITH EMMA BARNES
MAY 18, 1-4PM
Create your own custom flag to add some flair to your garden, yard or patio. Using your own artwork or some of ours, you'll create an image to transform into a screenprint. We will guide you through the basics of screenprinting on fabric, from designing your stencil to prepping your screen to pulling a successful print. You'll leave with a one of a kind flag to show off to your neighbors and friends.
