During our last session we learned the gel transfer technique where we were able to take our printed photos and turn them into canvas art. This session we will be playing with heat transfers on cotton based surfaces. If this is something that interests you sign up now!
The workshops are open to anyone (16-29) who self-identifies as a Muslim woman through the spectrum of familial, spiritual, political, cultural, and ancestral connections.
There is very limited space so please sign up by emailing email@example.com by March 9th 🙂
