General overview:
We’ll be bleaching colored cotton t-shirts, using vinyl stickers as masks to create personalized t-shirts:

Attendees: 5-8(10-16) with 2 classes, an hour each or so
There should be plenty of table space to accommodate that many people if desired.

When: Sunday August 18th Noon

Medium T-shirts: 36
Large T-shirts: 14 dark (7 light)

Spray bottle
Bleach Solution
Vinyl stickers
Buckets
Vinegar (Bleach neutralizing solution)

Attendees will need to bring:
Other T-shirt sizes if desired. We only have a limited amount of L/XL shirts on hand.
Work safe clothing (we’ll be working with a bleach solution)

Timeline/Procedure:
Claudio will want to have the artwork (one or two pieces) the week before the class. Claudio will cut the artwork that Friday to have time to address any issues prior to the class on Sunday. On Sunday we’ll peel the stickers, place on the shirts and spray with a bleach solution. The shirt will then sit for 5-10 minutes depending on desired finish. We’ll then rinse the shirt in some water and finally in a vinegar solution to help neutralize the bleaching process. We’ll then hang the t-shirts to dry.

Cost Breakdown:
Base Class: Members $5 NonMembers: $10 (Includes 1 Free shirt: Either one you bring, or from Supplies on hand)
Extra shirt (ours or yours): $2 each (we may limit how many due to attendance)

Supplies on hand are limited to first come, only size listed are available
