August 8th, 2018: Tee Shirt Workshop for artists & environmentalists: Oak Island Rec Center (Salt Marsh Room) 1:30-4:30 pm
State your opposition to oil exploration/drilling in the Atlantic by creating and wearing an expressive tee shirt of your own design. Suggested materials include tee shirts suitable for attaching a message and drawing/painting supplies: permanent markers, fabric markers, acrylic paints, brushes, freezer paper (pallet), note paper for ideas, etc. A piece of cardboard approximately 12 x 15” and pins will be helpful to secure the fabric while working. Cotton dish towels can be painted and attached to shirts rather than painting directly on the shirts. Bring whatever materials that you have, but most importantly bring ideas of ways to convey visually the serious consequences of this retro energy policy. We will have a few extra shirts and some painting materials. There is no charge for the workshop. The next Board of Supervisors’ meeting is August 20. It would be good if we can make shirts for ourselves and additional ones to pass out for other folks to wear. Shirts can be made in the comfort of your home, but creativity will bloom with the group’s sharing of ideas. Please RSVP to Sally Buchanan, firstname.lastname@example.org or 910 269 8969.
