What to wear...

Please wear casual work clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and/or paint on, closed toe shoes and rubber or work boots (if you own them) as the ground may be soft/wet.

We HIGHLY recommend a few different clothing items (layering), including short/long sleeve shirts and pants. In September, cool mornings lead to stunning afternoons!

MC4T has the tools/supplies you need, but if you would prefer to bring your own hammer, gloves, eye protection, etc. please bring them.

As always, we provide a cool MC4T t-shirt! We have some extras in case you get paint on yours.
