]Join artist Emily Brooks from Taea Made for an afternoon of upcycled crafting during our Aptitude Valentines Market at West Acres. With just a bit of thread, we’re turning these unused XL t-shirts into a bag you can use every day. This craft is super fun and easy. We’ll be collecting free-will donations to benefit The Arts Partnership. #supportlocalart
PLUS! If you bring in your own t-shirt or bag, artist Christina Johnson will be on-hand with a heat press to help embellish your fabric item with our “Support Local Art” slogan in either black or white heat transfer vinyl. You can customize your item even more by adding a sparkly glitter vinyl heart!
