The staff at Gepci Sportswear & Team Apparel clothes patrons in custom screen-printed and embroidered clothing for all occasions. During a two-hour workshop, pupils learn to graft their own designs onto vellum stencils from photographs or black-and-white drawings. Students introduce each stencil to monochrome ink by pressing it on a manual print screen, gently coaxing pigment through their image onto the final T-shirt canvas. By submitting their potential design ahead of time, student allow the instructors to greet their protégés with a sample rendering in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator at the session's start. Pupils hone their new craft on two white, 100% cotton shirts in their choice of size, which they can keep, give as gifts, or wave defiantly at the next turtleneck convention.
