TEE PARTY BY NORTHERN CRAFT & AWESOME MERCH
12-6pm, Saturday 23rd June 2018 at Awesome Merchandise HQ, Wellington Bridge Industrial Estate, Leeds.
TEE PARTY is our maybe anticipated follow up to PIN DROP. We’ve commissioned 11 exclusive tees from 10 of our favourite artists, designers, crafters, and makers (and Sean). We have teamed up with Awesome Merchandise to bring you a huge live screen printing event. Anybody who comes down and buys a tee will be able to see it get printed in front of them. The theme for the show is POSITIVITY. The world feels a little more cruel these days with Brexit & Trump and the inflated price of crisps, we thought it would be nice to change the conversation and try to inject a little positive message into the clothes people wear. Below are all the artists contributing their work to Tee Party.
We will also be hosting a party with a Street Fair, food, drink & entertainment. If you would like to participate, contact us here.

I think we have said enough about Sean Mort on this website. People seem to like his work and it would have been a bit weird and rude if we didn't include him in this project. seanmort.com
