Space is limited. Please do not register if you are not sure you will be able to make it. We anticipate selling out and having to use a waiting list. If you register a ticket and find out you will not be able to attend, please cancel your order or contact us so we can free up the ticket for someone else.

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.
