Last May 18, we attended the I Silk Screen This Tee by Artwork at Trinoma. I was late for Up Dharma Down (such a loser) because they started playing at exactly 4pm. But I still had a chance to listen to Armi’s voice even for a just a couple of minutes.

The event was jam-packed with a lot of people. Different kinds. There were teenagers, kids (I think) and moms who patiently fell in line just to have their daughters’ and sons’ shirt printed.
Working on the customer’s design
Silk-screens patterns and designs
Drying the prints
First, we bought our shirts and tried to fall in line. The whole place was very crowded and since we’re hungry, we decided to have our lunch first then roam around for a while.
Their litte artwork stall
When we returned, we expected that there will be fewer people. But we failed. It was even more crowded and we waited for almost 2 to 3 hrs for our turn. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the event organizer’s fault, nor the staff who were printing the shirts, I think it was because of those people who wanted to print their shirts extravagantly.

The paint colors
We were kinda impatient because aside from we have to leave early for another event , those people I’m talking about were very annoying. But anyways, “kanya-kanya tayo” so “wapakels”, at least we still have our shirts printed.
Moi was the first one to try. He chose the skull design and a text that says “It’s Alive!”. We attended this event in the first place because we wanted to see how the silk screen tees are made and Moi really wanted to try the procedure of making it. Kind enough, the staff let us try doing the silk screen thing.
Too bad we don’t have a decent shot of the finish products. Still, we enjoyed it and it’s worth a try. We’ll definitely attend next time!
Thank you Artwork! 🙂
