Coming off the success of the shibori scarf sale, I am excited about the upcoming Tote and T-shirt Sale, and I hope you are as well! The blanks we have purchased are excellent, and we anticipate a high level of interest from students, faculty and staff.
We would like to begin work on this project as soon as possible. I will begin doling out the unprocessed garments this coming Thursday, February 25th between 10:00AM-12:00PM. Please make every effort to come during this time.
Every Thursday, at around this time I will be preparing larger dye baths and other processes to be completed for the sale. We are trying to conserve dyes, silkscreen materials, chemicals, and studio space devoted to this project. We expect you to also work on this project during a portion on your monitoring hours, but if you can dye multiple garments at a time, work in collaboration with your peers, or share the bath with your class work. Additional weekend dates may be added depending on need. I anticipate spending one day to complete the screen-printing process.
If you are interested in designing the silkscreened imagery for the totes and t-shirts, you must submit your design by, Friday, March 5th.
-The maximum design size is 12”x12”.
-The design must be able to printed using a single color.
-The design must be ready to be printed on transparency film and be created in a grayscale color profile.
-Consider a single image design may be repeated to create a more complex design.
Please email your submission to me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an easy and fun way to expose people to your work!
We would like to hold a Tyler Pre Sale in the lobby during the first week of spring, March 22nd – 26th. I think Friday, March 26th would be an excellent date because the studio is closed because of a Philagrafika demonstration.
We will also be selling at the Spring Fling, Wednesday, April 13, 2010.
All Proceeds from this sale will go directing to maintaining and purchasing new equipment for the studio, funding visiting artists, and field trips! In other words, increasing the awesomeness of the Fibers Area!
Please contact me, email@example.com with any questions and/or concerns.
