There is something special about wearing your own creation or giving it to a friend to wear. Join Hera Collective artist Jamie Felton in drawing and painting on t-shirts to create a positive female empowerment message on each shirt. In the beginning of the workshop we will be drawing together and collaboratively working to brainstorm images for our shirts. As we draw we will be thinking about signs or symbols of positivity, friendship, favorite body part, favorite plant, favorite color, etc. In the next part of the workshop we will be executing our images onto our t-shirts. We will be using fabric markers, fabric glue, fabric paint and dyes.
