Arts Council of Tamworth invites you to join Megan Nicolay, Sandwich native, eco-fashionista and author of the bestselling books, Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-shirt and Generation T: Beyond Fashion: 120 New Ways to Transform a T-shirt, for a crafty Tee Party on Thursday, March 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth. Megan will demonstrate clothing redesign techniques and projects from her newest book, and she invites you to bring an old T-shirt or two from the back of your closet to join in the fun — scissors will be provided. Learn dozens of ways to breathe new life into that wardrobe essential: the classic T-shirt. This workshop is free. ACT welcomes donations in support of these kinds of events.
Megan will be ACT’s artist-in-residence at the K. A. Brett School from March 6 through 9. Homeschoolers in 6th through 8th grade are invited to participate; call the school at 603-323-7271 for the schedule. In preparation for the residency, ACT wants to give you the opportunity to do a little spring cleaning—of your T-shirt drawer! They are seeking T-shirts of all sizes and colors, in nearly any state of repair. T-shirts can be dropped off at the Brett School, or contact ACT at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-323-8104 to make other arrangements. They are also looking for clean drop cloths to protect surfaces from nontoxic fabric paint.
