Class Of The Week: Screenprinting For Newbies

Time: 3 hours

Cost: $38

Spots: 9

Instructor: Nicole

Why: Because paying for bad ass stationary, t-shirts and posters is overrated.

Screen printing seems intimidating. What kind of equipment is involved? Is it messy? Does it smell? Are the inks harmful? We know, we know — you’re overwhelmed. But its actually much easier than it looks!


This past Saturday, a group of ambitious students were transformed from novices to sassy printers in just a matter of three hours by Nicole, our resident screen printing teacher. Nicole, who has been practicing her craft since the age of 14, opened up about her home screen printing experiences and offered great advice regarding printing at home and at workshop. after a lesson in basics, how to burn screens properly and a printing demonstration, everyone got their hands dirty!

We use water soluble inks that are both less toxic and environmentally friendly since we love nature and all her lovely subjects.

Students were able to screen stationary, t-shirts, patches, beer coozies and posters over the two hour open screen period.

I had fun with this ridiculously awesome logo that I’ve been obsessed with over the last few months. I’m thinking of screening it onto an old t-shirt and sewing it into the back of my favorite blazer.

Click here to sign up for the next session on Saturday, February 6th. If you’re interested in using our equipment, check out Late Night Screening on Friday, February 5th.
