What you'll learn in this screen printing class:

In this 2 night intensive class, you'll get hands on and learn the entire process of silkscreening.

The first night you'll be introduced to the materials, shown different methods of printing, and become more comfortable with the process with lots of sample printing. We'll learn how to set up, register, and production style print t-shirts on our press.

During the second night, you'll create your own two color or one color large scale silkscreen! Each student will create their t-shirt 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 the first night, so we can discuss them and plan ahead. If you want a hand drawn look, bring your sketch, on 8.5"x14" max, so you can trace right onto the film. If graphically inclined, send your images to [email protected] at least one prior to class. Your image MUST be in GRAYSCALE AND high resolution. Images off the web WILL NOT WORK.

You will be provided with four 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, so bring as much as you want if you have a project in mind!

You will not be able to keep your silkscreens, but if you want to, please let us 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.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
