This experience will teach you how to print custom designs on shirts, totes, or other fabric items you bring to have customized. You will be welcomed to our studio with an apron and an introduction to our staff instructors. Then we'll walk you through the steps of creating a screen for printing, as well as a customizable option to make your own designs that day. After that, it's time to get started! The remainder of the workshop will be a combination of test prints and printing onto your final pieces. You will walk away with an updated wardrobe that is custom made by you! Most participants leave with 4-10 finished items. This can be a great way to bring some thoughtful souvenirs home to your loved ones.
I began my career as a commercial photographer. When I discovered the opportunity to combine my creative skills and social values, I changed course and began working as the Coordinator of Jubilee Designs. Working with Toronto's at-risk youth population has been eye-opening. We hear hard stories, but the hopes and dreams of the youth shine through those hard times. My mission, and that of Jubilee Designs, is to give these youth positive work experience acting as a spring-board for their future. We want them to go on to excel at school, find their career passion, or start their own businesses!

Our workshop will be held in the arts room at the Yonge Street Mission's Evergreen Centre for Street-Involved Youth. This is where many of our youth instructors became connected with Jubilee Designs and where we make all of our handmade creations. Evergreen offers many other services to homeless and at-risk youth including health, housing, and employment services.
