A sign for screen printing was posted in the “Hackerspace Village” when we arrived Saturday. As we stood there watching them make imprints in shirts, they asked us for help (hackers are so friendly!) and well, this helped us get a closer look into how they were making these sweet Darth Vader designs on t-shirts.
The Hacktory was showing off its way of promoting the use of technology in arts. The team there was using discharge glue, which acts like a bleach towards color pigments, forming some cool designs in their name after it’s set to dry. Two of which included Star Wars inspired designs: Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper. $5 t-shirts, free if you brought your own blank one means it was the best t-shirt offer at the Last HOPE Conference.
