Custom T-Shirts in the East Village: Works in Progress NYC

Custom T-Shirts East Village, Works In Progress NYCIf you want to combine your company’s next purchase of company t-shirts with helping high school-ers find their creative mojo and potential career path, get a price quote from the East Village’s Works In Progress NYC, managed by the tireless Emily Clark, WIP’s Program Director.

EVP recently visited the production shop and interviewed the entire crew.

Check out the following video:

Works In Progress internships are offered each year to students who may have creative interests or find that traditional classroom settings aren’t a great fit. Students are taught all phases of the production process as it relates to silk-screening at the WIP offices at 59 East 4th Street in NYC’s East Village. T-shirts, bags and other printable wearables can be produced by the team of artisans at a competitive price.

This year’s participating group includes New York City high school students from the Institute for Collaborative Eduction (ICE) and Essex Street Academy.

Not surprisingly, many of the areas museums use Works in Progress NYC for their t-shirt business as the opportunity to give back to the community along with expert execution of designs is hard to pass up.

In the coming years Emily tells us that WIP hopes to expand the program to include more students, more space and, eventually, computers for participating students, too.

Fourth Arts Block, on which WIP resides, continues to evolve as companies and non-profits plot their growth strategies in spite of the domestic economy’s woes.
