What you'll learn in this screen printing class:

Have you wanted to print your own tshirts? Or need a refresher course to get comfortable with the materials again?
(2 days class time, plus free studio pass)
In this class you'll be introduced to the materials, shown different methods of printing, and become more comfortable with the process. We'll learn how to set up, register, and production style print tshirts your own design!

Each student will create their tshirt design with their own 8.5" x 14" artwork and transfer the design onto two silkscreens, for a two color print, front and back print OR you can choose to use one screen but 12"x 14" artwork image. 

Come prepared with your artwork ideas. If you want a hand drawn look, bring your sketch, on 8.5"x14" max," so you can trace onto the film. If graphically inclined, send your images to karin "at" betterthanjamnyc "dot" com at least one prior to the first day of class. Your image MUST be in GRAYSCALE AND high resolution. We'll work on our images at the end of the first day, and create the screens earlier on the second day. So there will be time to edit or change our ideas once we learn the process better. 

You will be provided 4, fashion cut, white cotton tshirts (a size run S-XL) for your final print, but bring your own if you have a look/color choice in mind. Students will be given about an hour of "free print" time during class to print at least 4 pieces per. HOWEVER each student now gets a FREE STUDIO DAY. Return within 2 months to print more with your screen.

You will not be able to keep your silkscreens, but if you want to, let me know. You can purchase the used screen at cost at the end of class if you wish. Most likely that would cost $38 each screen. But we'll save it for two months, so you can return.

This class was great-- fun, mellow, super helpful, and an environment that made it very easy to learn. The group was small so you could really try things and ask questions. The instructor was very knowledgeable, helpful, and well-prepared. There was a good balance of support/instruction vs freedom to experiment. The class definitely made me want to do more screen printing!
