Stencil1 Made Their Mark!

housingworks_2017_01

Stencil1 loves partnering with other companies to curate fun DIY events– especially if it means having to help those in need! Yesterday, Stencil1 spent the evening along with Housing Works to provide a charity event, raising funds for the homeless and people living with HIV/AIDS.

Ed Roth, founder of Stencil1, instructed the crowd on how-to stencil their items. Guests had a blast painting t-shirts, posters, and more using our stencil designs!

Here are some pictures from the event!

It all started off with this sketch. I printed a picture of the chair before it was painted and started sketching on it to get some ideas.

Make Your Mark with Stencil1, a charity event with Housing Works

Stencil1 has had some very fun DIY events with major brands such as the Gap and Levi’s. We bring the stencils and paint, they supply the clothing, and it’s a party.  Well, we have taken that formula and are applying it to charity. We are beyond thrilled to be working with Housing Works, a nonprofit organization providing housing, medical, prevention, support services for those living with HIV/AIDS.

Stencil1- Web Graphic

We are raising money for this cause in two ways: Through a DIY event in the Housing Works thrift store in Chelsea where you get to DIY political posters and clothing AND by auctioning off a chair that Stencil1 founder, Ed Roth, customized with political stencils.

Here are the details:

Stencil1 - Poster

The event is sponsored by Pebeo. They generously donated fabric paint so we can stencil clothing at this event. Come and learn how to stencil your own political poster for the next protest, or just customize some clothing you purchase. You’ll feel good doing it as all proceeds go right to Housing Works!

You can register for the event here!

Bid on the chair! Ed customized this chair donated by William Grant & Sons with political messaging to make a real statement piece in your home. Activism has never looked so chic!
