October 28
Print your own designs on white t-shirts! In a collaboration between Teckningsmuseet and Art Lab Gnesta, the artist Olle Halvars comes to Teckningsmuseet and holds the workshop “Dagsform” (Daily mood). You simply design a print based on your daily mood: maybe you feel happy, sad, bored or excited? Using paper, scissors and a paring knife, we create templates with facial expressions which we then print on a t-shirt. The technique is called “screen printing”.

Workshop 1: 12.00–14.00, age 12–14 years.
Workshop 2: 14.30–16.30, age 15–18 years
