Ogden Nature Center - December Events

Upcycling T-Shirts Workshop
Wednesday, November 30 from 6 - 8 pm
Cost: $8 Ogden Nature Center members
$10 non-members
Ages: 12 +
Ever had a great idea for a t-shirt? At the Ogden Nature Center you can learn how to put your ideas onto your very own shirt. Putting new designs on old shirts saves money, reduces waste, and is just plain fun. With a little creativity, humor, and patience you'll have a new shirt by the end of the night!  Please provide your own t-shirt for printing. Shirts may be new or old, but in good condition. Participants are welcome to bring their own designs for printing as well. Designs should be simple, black & white, and have minimal detail to simplify the process. Space is limited. Please pre-register by November 29 at 5 pm to 801-621-7595.
