Recently we stumbled across Cheryl’s beautiful story while browsing comments about our School’d Workshop series on social media. Cheryl was raving about her experience at our first screen printing workshop, Screen Printsies with Drinksies. After contacting her directly we learned that the workshop literally changed her life. Here’s what she had to say:
“Since the last Screen Printsies with Drinksies Workshop… like literally just a couple weeks ago… I opened my small shop called On Twenty Ninth on Etsy and will be at my first artisan fair this Thursday selling my designs on t-shirts, tote bags and buttons. My designs are targeted to residents who live in three specific areas of my South Etobicoke neighborhood. I’ve been generating a good buzz leading up to my first launch this Thursday. The people in my neighborhood tell me they’ve been waiting along time to represent our neighborhoods on a T-shirt. I’ve also got a few pop up shops lined up as part of South Etobicoke Cultural Hot Spot.”
“The workshop taught me so much. It was literally my first time even picking up a silk screen. I love the entire process. Even the little ‘mistakes’ look cool and unique. It’s such a trial by error process, but so fun. I have a day desk job and two young kids, so I just love having this new creative outlet all my own.”
Thanks for sharing your story with us Cheryl. Follow On Twenty Ninth here.
