We all use so much shit. We collect shit, buy shit, steal shit, trade shit and then throw shit away. This workshop will allow us to take abandoned shit and rejected shit and breath new life into it (and maybe ourselves in the process). You will receive pieces of abandoned shit to restore, and Jessica and Tim will then lead you through some writing, lettering and painting magic that will leave you feeling a lot different about your shit than when you started.
