WKS823: Heat Transfer Techniques for Fabric
Class Number 1949-114509

In this workshop, students will use the Universal laser to cut out a design from special heat-transfer material. This technique allows you to make custom t-shirts, tote bags, or other cloth-based projects!

You can combine colors to add interest, or make a statement in monotone.

Once the fabric pieces are cut out, you will use the heat press to permanently adhere them to material. You may also bring in your own t-shirt, tote bag, or other fabric item to use.

Please have a simple vector format design in a digital file to use for this workshop. Black and white photos are acceptable. TechShop will provide one black t-shirt for each participant and the transfer material in black, red, blue, silver, and white.
