Workshop Studio Time Equipment Specs, Add-Ons, and Details


Rates for studio time:

Base space rental: $12 an hour (2 hour minimum) for using the space & equipment

Equipment Specifics:

*Building/ tools: We do not rent our power tools & saws but you can BYO tools. Just email before to ask for noise factor. You can use our hammers, drills (not the fastest) & jigsaws. (we will charge you for a blade for the jigsaw, so please email us before hand so we can have them on site & batteries charged)

*Sewing Equipment: We have Janome 2212 basic machines. We do not have Sergers or industrial machines. If you are sewing anything thicker than denim, please bring your own needles. If you have satin or something with a unique fabric, please check online about fabrics vs needles and be sure to pick up some. We carry basic needles and denim needles, threads and scissors. You’ll need to BYO fabrics and any specific thread colors if you want an exact match or are OCD about that.

*Screening Equipment: We have an exposure unit, inks, a tee shirt press and table stations where you can do one color printing (two color if you’re experienced in it). You can make your own band merch, print for your own tee shirt graphic, or just make cards. Whatever you like as long as its ok with our basic inks and a flash dryer. We do not use plastisol or a conveyor dryer, so you cant run a major tee shirt business out of studio time clearly but you can do lots of basic printing. We also have a few artists that can work with other artists on how to print for art shows and etc. Note: please bring your own poster paper, anything specific you want to print and any specific inks. We always have some blanks to print, fun papers and a variety of colors of inks but email us with questions and BYO ink & specific papers/blanks if you have something specific in mind.

*Ordering a New Custom Screen: for an additional $45, you can send in your own custom images to be burned onto a screen (whatever can fit onto two 8.5 X 11 sheets or one 11 X 14 sheet) AND take your screen to print at home or at a studio. All screens use brand new 110 – 230 mesh count silk screen fabric stretched over recycled frames. An email must be sent to that includes images and the date of your class. Images must be submitted 72 hours or more prior to the class. Please download this sheet for image instructions: (if link doesn’t work, please try copying and pasting it into your browser.)

*Screening blanks: We have a variety of blanks available at the shop. If you are planning on printing multiples or  want to be sure we’ll have your specific size and preferred colors, with notice we can order you blanks as well.
