Radical!

Teens will be totally psyched to make these rad, 80s-inspired pins and accessories. The shrink plastic art set comes with 18 images from designer Christine Schmidt that would have looked right at home on a pocket binder or denim jacket back in the day—rainbows, junk food, galactic imagery, and more. After they've colored them in with the included pencils, pop them into the oven and watch them shrink down to their final size. Attach the included pin backs, and they can share them with friends or add flair to their own backpacks and hats. Made in China.

“I make things that I want. I have an idea and I figure out how to make it.”

Christine Schmidt's art career began in primary school when she won a bike in the local grocer's coloring contest (it was red and had ten whole speeds!) After a youth spent on the plains of Kansas City and art school in Washington D.C., she and her boyfriend, Evan, moved west to a little place perched atop windy Bernal Hill in San Francisco. Fueled by too much black tea and public radio shows, she spent nights creating hand-printed cards and gifts. Seeking out local suppliers and working with fine, earth-loving materials, she began honing her line of wares. In 2007, after steeling her nerves, Christine took a box of her goods to some local stores...they placed orders, and Yellow Owl Workshop was born.

Christine's workshop now bustles with a team of hard-working ladies in a sunny Mission district studio. Though it's grown, the workshop's original values of attention to detail, ecological awareness, and premium, American-made materials are evident in every product.
