Clocking in at just 3 hours (or less), this is a great class to get your feet inky without information overload. Maybe you have wanted to see what this screen printing thing is all about but have limited time at the moment. Or maybe you just like to try new things and then move on to learning something else. This workshop gets you in the door with a studio tour, a walkthrough of the entire process and then on the press to print your fabric-based items.
You DO NOT have to take this workshop to take the Screen Print Pro version. This is more of a taste test. If you do take this workshop first, however, you do get a discount should you decide to step up to the Pro workshop!
How Many Items Can We Bring?
Bring in around 8-10 fabric based items. Lighter colors will work best. T-shirts, tote bags, pillow cases, tea towels, pullover hoodies, etc. No items such as thick towels, heavily textured materials or items with pockets and zippers, please. You can purchase blank T's from Michaels and AC Moore or bring items from home. You can also setup an account with online retailers like shirtspace.com. Don't be afraid to bring old shirts and items with printing on them as well. The results could be really cool!
How Many Colors Are We Printing?
Due to time and keeping things moving along, we will be limiting things to a one-color print. You will need to pick the same ink color for all the items you bring. Bring all white or lighter colored fabrics for the best results and ink color selection. Though sometimes you get those unexpected pops of "wow!" when you try darker T's.
What Kind of Designs Will We Be Printing?:
For this starter class, we will have a selection of art ready to go. You will walk away with some cool local themed wearables at the end of the workshop.
What Should I Wear?:
Screen printing can be a bit messy and we have aprons for you to wear, so dress comfortably and in some older clothes that you are willing to get inky.
We're usually done by 1:00 pm - but don't worry - we're also not kicking anyone out so if it's taking you a bit longer - don't panic. Fun has no time limit!
