*IMPORTANT NOTE: You do not have to bring all of this! It's your choice!
You will be provided with fabric and paint as part of your class fee, and there will also be fabric available for purchase on site. 
*PLEASE NOTE: When doing surface design-- as opposed to fabric dyeing-- You DO NOT NEED PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabrics. It is also optional to pre-wash your cotton or cotton sateen...most fabrics can be silk-screened or painted as is...heat-setting with an iron will stabilize the paint before processing further.
