Awesome class. Lane is a great instructor and willing to carefully explain everything in great detail, from process to materials and even a bit of history. The first class is structured to break the ice with classmates while learning the basics. Shoestring Press is a relaxed, welcoming environment in which everybody works hard and has fun doing so.

It was a great class, covered technique, tips on design, and the shirts came out really well. I feel grounded in this art form now, and basically want to go and make shirts as much as possible, now. So glad I took this class!

Informative and interesting class! The first half you learn two methods of screen printing and the second each person works on their own project. I think it would be very helpful for the studio to upload some examples of work created in the class. Since we're asked to bring materials for our own projects I think we would have been able to make more interesting personal projects if we had an idea of what we would be doing.

This class was worth every penny. The curriculum of the class is a legit crash course in print making- you definitely will have all the fundamentals down pat. And, you'll walk away with some pretty amazing work. With the help of the instructors Lane & Eric, I'm super proud of what I made. Also, Lane and Eric have a funny kind of banter going on, so without meaning to, they themselves are pretty entertaining. Super happy with this class, definitely going back for more.

Thank you CourseHorse for offering this class. It was wonderful, beyond wonderful! I learned a lot, and the teachers/experts were open, friendly, warm, and very helpful. I know a lot more than before, which was zero!

The Shoestring Press has excellent facilities for Silkscreen Printing. Lane was very clear and instructive. He first showed us how to print using stencils, and then how to print using emulsion to prepare the screens. Both he and Erik, his assistant, were constantly available for questions and help with the techniques. The Saturday we spent doing this was an excellent investment of time, and the price of the class is very reasonable. Especially when you take into account that the Press gives you *everything* you need to do your projects there. Very hightly recommended.
