Workshop: Screen Printing @ Idiom Design, Indiranagar
In four short hours on a Saturday afternoon, you could learn the simple process of screen printing. It’s going to be a small batch; so, individual attention ought to be high. What’s the point of screen printing? Well, for one, I’ll be able to print my propaganda on T-shirts.
Ditch the 4-hour Karan Johar/ Ashutosh Gowarikar saga playing on TV this Saturday afternoon, and come along. Say AnonCulturist’s name when you register, and you’ll get a free cup of tea… from me.
Day: Saturday, July 30
Time: 1:45pm - 5:45pm
Fee: Rs. 1,200/-
