Screen Printing For Newbies $48

/
Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative! 

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. In this class we DO NOT OFFER CUSTOM SCREENS (please see out intensive class for that). In class, you will be using our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet. 

Supplies Needed:
 none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.

Whiskey Picks Not Whiskey Dicks: Pickling With Beer And Booze  $56
/

Were taking pickling up a notch in this new class with our pickling maven, Kelly McVicker. We think it’s a damn shame that whiskey"s reputation has been tarnished by its association with the dreaded whiskey d*ck, so we"re here to defend its honor with...whiskey picks!

That"s right: In this class we will teach you how to make a nice & firm dill pickle, then we’ll booze it up a notch and show you how to incorporate booze into the brine, not only creating amazing flavors but keeping your spirits up and your cheeks warm as you go. Each class will differ based on what"s in season, but expect to learn recipes like Maple-Whiskey Pickles, Bourbon-Pickled Jalapenos (our favorite at workshop- we are ADDICTED) and smoky Porter Pickles using Speakeasy"s Payback Porter beer. Of course, we couldn"t just throw these elixirs into the brine without tasting them first, (RIGHT?) so we"ll sample a few whiskeys as we go and chase "em down with pickle backs.

You"ll leave with two jars of goodies and plenty of sampling of whiskey, brines, pickle backs, beers and pickles in class. Expect a super fun class that teaches you the basics of pickling with the added bonus of fine spirits, making for a perfect date night or night out with friends.

Supplies needed: All supplies are included, but feel free to BYO whiskey, beer, or other favorite spirit to work with.

Teacher bio: Kelly launched McVicker Pickles in 2012 to bring her love for pickling and food preservation to the masses. Born and raised in Kansas, she learned all about pickling and canning from her grandmas Margarett and Harriet. Kelly brought those traditions with her to San Francisco where she soon found herself haggling over boxes of cucumbers at the farmers market, and loving it. Kelly is the house pickler at Pig & Pie in the Mission, where she also sells her jarred creations. Check out McVicker Pickles on Facebook.

Intro To Metalsmithing: Getting To Know Your Tools $68
/

In Getting To Know Your Tools, students will begin learning about and using hand tools traditionally used by metalsmiths. This is a great intro class to learn some simple basics with affordable tools. Students will learn these basic skills by making their own pendants from a sheet of sterling silver.  They will draw a simple, minimalist shape (diamond, triangle, circle, crescent, etc… NO STARS OR OTHER COMPLEX SHAPES) within a square inch of sterling silver.  Then students will saw out their shape using a handsaw, file down the rough edges using jewelry files, and sand the metal until it is smooth with fine sandpaper.  Students will finish off their own pendant piece by poking a hole in the metal and attaching a jump ring to their pendant so it will easily attach to a chain or leather cord.

Students will leave class with a finished pendant that they designed and constructed from base materials as well as a ‘zine titled ‘What We Learned In Class’, for future reference if they choose to continue their practice in metal smithing.  They will also take a foundational understanding of metal smithing, jewelry making, and its history home with them. 

LONG HAIRED STUDENTS: HAIR SHOULD BE WORN TIED BACK, SHORTER HAIR SHOULD BE TUCKED BEHIND THE EAR OR SECURED WITH BOBBY PINS.

Supplies needed: None

Screen Printing For Newbies $48
/

Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative!

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class.

We are so lucky to live in one of the greatest booze regions in North America, with more distilleries, wineries and bars than you can shake a muddler at. So let’s toast ourselves and our fabulous fortune shall we? 

In this class, you will make 3 amazing drinks, all with locally distilled spirits--and not just from the big boys. We track down some of our favorite local small batch distilleries and make some tasty libations using the products of their craftsmanship. 
 
The class starts with a warm up shot to break the ice. We will then make 3 cocktails and go into detail about tasting notes, balance and how to get the most from each bottle. A little background history about the booze trade in SF is also thrown in for good measure to impress those out of town friends.
 
You’ll learn the essential techniques to crafting great cocktails - how to mix, muddle, shake, and stir properly. You will also learn how to balance every flavor that goes into making the perfect drink.
 
The price of class includes everything, including some rare and expensive liquors. You will walk out with a recipe booklet, a list of Gillian’s favorite go to watering holes in the city and the know how to dazzle your peeps next time you entertain and know a lot more about some epic Bay Area booze options and what makes them so great.

She really knows her booze and cocktail making, as well as a lot about the SF cocktail scene from dive bars to fancy cocktail spots.

Brew It Yourself: Intro To Homebrewing $100

/

Have you ever tasted a beer and said, I could probably make that? Or said, I could probably make something better? Take our Brew It Yourself: Beer Making at Home class and you’ll realize how true that is. You’ll get your hands dirty on one of our brewing rigs, and after this two part class you’ll actually walk away with a case of beer that you brewed. You and a couple of partners will brew a 5 gallon batch of beer in the first class. Then two weeks later you’ll come back and get to taste and bottle your beer. You will leave with at least eight 22oz bottles of your beer.

During the class, you’ll munch malts and huff hops, learning how to use them to achieve the flavor you want. You’ll become best friends with yeast, and fall in love with sanitizer. We’ll have a tasting of many different styles of beer to get you acquainted with the many possibilities of brewing. You’ll learn great detail about the production process in a commercial brewery, and also learn about the science behind the art. You’ll get the low down on what the best equipment is for your home brewery. Everything will help you gain the knowledge you need to make a successful, flavorful batch of beer at home.

Check out more photos from the class here!

This class is taught over two sessions.

Session 1: Saturday August 8th
Session 2: Wednesday August 26th 7:00-9:00 (2 hours total)

Supplies needed: none, but we optionally request that you bring your favorite beer to share with the class.

Craft Cocktail Essentails: Brew Your Own Bitters $88
/

Bitters. Originally sold as stomach tonics and health cure-alls, they have become an indispensable part of cocktail crafting for as long as the craft has existed. Angustura Bitters has been around since 1824, Peychaud’s was started in a New Orleans Apothacary in 1830, and ever since, the recipes have been kept a closely guarded secret. Craft cocktail bars create their own bitters in a variety of flavors, and now so can you.

In this class you will be introduced to each of the common (and some of the uncommon) ingredients used to make bitters. You will be able to sample individual infusions including Wormwood, Tonka Bean, and Chinchona Bark (and tons of others), before combining ingredients to make three different varieties of bitters to take home with you (Finished and usable roughly 2-3 weeks after the class). 

After sealing up your bitters to allow them to infuse, the class will sample and discuss three different cocktails that have been designed to take advantage of each type of bitters you have just made. Class will continue by learning several amazing cocktail recipes using bitters, so not only will you make them but you will learn how to craft up some great cocktails and dazzle your friends when you entertain.

This class is priced to reflect the large amount of ingredients, herbs and alcohol needed to create bitters. The class will be very fun and informative, and you’ll work with over 15 different herbs and ingredients as well as learn how to make several high end craft cocktails along with the bottles of bitters you take home.

Supplies and prerequisites: 21+ ONLY as alcohol is used in the brewing of bitters. No supplies will be required and all herbs, alcohol and containers will be provided.

Screen Printing Intensive With Custom Screen & Darkroom Training $100

/
Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You will  coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative! THIS CLASS ALSO INCLUDES A FREE TOTE BAG OR TEE SHIRT YOU CAN CHOOSE IN CLASS.

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive (as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. In this class we INCLUDE YOUR OWN SCREEN. In class, you will be using your screen, as well as can use our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a intensive starter class that deals with darkroom and screen prep over 5 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet. 

Supplies Needed:
 none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.

This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative!

Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet. 

Supplies Needed:
 none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.

Brew It Yourself 102: Full Grain Brewing- POTRERO LOCATION $125


IMPORTANT: Location is 726 15th St, SF CA 94103, off of Potrero. In the "British Grocery" building.

Are you ready to take your home-brewing to the next level? Brew It Yourself 102 will give you all the techniques you need to make great beer at home via the advanced full-grain brewing method. After the class, you’ll walk away with a case of beer that you helped make, and the confidence to tackle a full-grain batch of beer at home.

You’ll get to take the class in the Comrades Brewing secret beer laboratory. We’ll first create a yeast starter, which will really get your yeast ready to take on the big job ahead of them. Then we’ll brew a 10 gallon batch of beer via the full-grain brewing method. We’ll carbonate our beer both in the bottle, and via force carbonation in a keg. During the brew, we’ll cover all your options for equipment, and dive into the science behind the art.

Since we’ll be going through some advanced techniques, we assume you already have basic brewing knowledge for this class. It is required that you have brewed at home, extract or full grain, or taken our Brew It Yourself 101 class.

This is the only class in SF where you get to learn from a professional brewer, and take home beer that you made. The class is limited to just 8 people, so you’ll get lots of time to ask questions. Your instructor Jason has worked hard to bring the principles and techniques of professional brewing to the world of homebrewing. You’ll really get a unique perspective that will take your brewing to the next level.

Part one: Saturday, August 22nd
Part two: Wednesday, September 9th, 7-9pm

This class will have a variety of succulents but in order to keep the class affordable, we will supplying about 10-14 smaller plants, which will grow- so if you want instant gratification, please feel free to bring some larger succulents or some with you.

Brew Your Own Bitters $88
style=

Bitters. Originally sold as stomach tonics and health cure-alls, they have become an indispensable part of cocktail crafting for as long as the craft has existed. Angustura Bitters has been around since 1824, Peychaud’s was started in a New Orleans Apothacary in 1830, and ever since, the recipes have been kept a closely guarded secret. Fancy cocktail bars create their own bitters in a variety of flavors, and now so can you.

In this class you will be introduced to each of the common (and some of the uncommon) ingredients used to make bitters. You will be able to sample individual infusions including Wormwood, Tonka Bean, and Chinchona Bark (and tons of others), before combining ingredients to make three different varieties of bitters to take home with you (Finished and usable roughly 2-3 weeks after the class).

After sealing up your bitters to allow them to infuse, the class will sample and discuss three different cocktails that have been designed to take advantage of each type of bitters you have just made. Conversations and cocktails will ensue until the class is over. 

This class is priced to reflect the large amount of ingredients, herbs and alcohol needed to create bitters. The class will be very fun and informative, and you’ll work with over 15 different herbs and ingredients as well as learn how to make several high end craft cocktails along with the bottles of bitters you take home.

Supplies and prerequisites:21+ ONLY as alcohol is used in the brewing of bitters. No supplies will be required and all herbs, alcohol and containers will be provided. It is recommended that prospective students like the idea of having cocktails as well as the bitters, as much of the conversation based around use and flavors will revolve around trying the cocktails (So, sorry teetotalers, there are probably other, more enjoyable classes for you).

Teacher Bio: Brendan Heath is a Taos, New Mexico born son of two artists. He spent years travelling the world and eventually landed in New York where he began seriously bartending, working at the AOC Bistro in Park Slope, Brooklyn before spending several years attempting to open a large bar of his own in lower Manhattan. After a winter season back in New Mexico, working as General Manager of the The Bavarian Bar and Lodge on the ski slopes of his hometown, Brendan decided that it was time to give the West Coast a try and moved to San Francisco. Since moving here, he has been working for several years at the Thieves bars (Mostly at Whiskey Thieves) as well as starting his own leatherworking company, Terminus Est Leather, and teaching classes at workshop. Say hi, he likes to talk about everything.

Hooch 101: Bay Area Booze  $58
"
/

We are so lucky to live in one of the greatest booze regions in North America, with more distilleries, wineries and bars than you can shake a muddler at. So let’s toast ourselves and our fabulous fortune shall we? 

In this class, you will make 3 amazing drinks, all with locally distilled spirits--and not just from the big boys. We track down some of our favorite local small batch distilleries and make some tasty libations using the products of their craftsmanship. 
 
The class starts with a warm up shot to break the ice. We will then make 3 cocktails and go into detail about tasting notes, balance and how to get the most from each bottle. A little background history about the booze trade in SF is also thrown in for good measure to impress those out of town friends.
 
You’ll learn the essential techniques to crafting great cocktails - how to mix, muddle, shake, and stir properly. You will also learn how to balance every flavor that goes into making the perfect drink.
 
The price of class includes everything, including some rare and expensive liquors. You will walk out with a recipe booklet, a list of Gillian’s favorite go to watering holes in the city and the know how to dazzle your peeps next time you entertain and know a lot more about some epic Bay Area booze options and what makes them so great.

Screen Printing For Newbies- DISCOUNTED HAPPY HOUR CLASS $40

/
Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative! 

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. In this class we DO NOT OFFER CUSTOM SCREENS (please see out intensive class for that). In class, you will be using our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet. 

Supplies Needed:
 none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.

Whiskey Picks Not Whiskey Dicks: Pickling With Beer And Booze $56
"
/
We’re taking pickling up a notch in this new class with our pickling maven, Kelly McVicker. We think it’s a damn shame that whiskey"s reputation has been tarnished by its association with the dreaded whiskey d*ck, so we"re here to defend its honor with...whiskey picks!

That"s right: In this class we will teach you how to make a nice & firm dill pickle, then we’ll booze it up a notch and show you how to incorporate booze into the brine, not only creating amazing flavors but keeping your spirits up and your cheeks warm as you go. Each class will differ based on what"s in season, but expect to learn recipes like Maple-Whiskey Pickles, Bourbon-Pickled Jalapenos (our favorite at workshop- we are ADDICTED) and smoky Porter Pickles using Speakeasy"s Payback Porter beer. Of course, we couldn"t just throw these elixirs into the brine without tasting them first, (RIGHT?) so we"ll sample a few whiskeys as we go and chase "em down with pickle backs. 

You"ll leave with two jars of goodies and plenty of sampling of whiskey, brines, pickle backs, beers and pickles in class. Expect a super fun class that teaches you the basics of pickling with the added bonus of fine spirits, making for a perfect date night or night out with friends. 

Supplies needed: All supplies are included, but feel free to BYO whiskey, beer, or other favorite spirit to work with. 

teacher bio: Kelly launched McVicker Pickles in 2012 to bring her love for pickling and food preservation to the masses. Born and raised in Kansas, she learned all about pickling and canning from her grandmas Margarett and Harriet. Kelly brought those traditions with her to San Francisco where she soon found herself haggling over boxes of cucumbers at the farmers market, and loving it. Kelly is the house pickler at Pig & Pie in the Mission, where she also sells her jarred creations. Check out McVicker Pickles on Facebook for the latest news on pop-ups and events, and don’t miss the monthly Beer & Brine Happy Hour at Workshop (3rd Friday of every month, 5-9pm).

DIY Hangover Cure: Bloody Mary + Pickled Garnishes $68
src=

Sure, technically all it takes to make a Bloody Mary is a can of mix, some cheap vodka and a stick of celery. But that’s like getting the Grand Slam at Denny’s and calling it “brunch.” You can do better than that. 

In this workshop, Gillian Fitzgerald from Virgil’s Sea Room and Kelly McVicker of McVicker Pickles help you pickle your veggies AND your liver—all in one class! During the first hour, Gillian will take you behind the bar to show you step-by-step how to make a classic Bloody Mary, and how to put your own twist on it using different types of alcohol and secret ingredients to make it shine. Kelly will then teach you how to pickle veggies like green beans, Brussels sprouts and carrots to use as creative garnishes (with the added benefit of soaking up some of that booze from last night.) You’ll end the class by tasting your creations and toasting yourselves for making your next brunch at home so much better. 

Each student will leave class with a jar of pickled treats, a jar of Bloody Mary mix, and recipes and tips to make sure you don’t forget all you just learned. 

About the teachers: 

Gillian Fitzgerald is part owner and full badass bartender at Virgil’s Sea Room. She learned the basics of booze as a wee lass in Ireland, and has been perfecting her skills on the San Francisco bar scene since 2008. 

Kelly McVicker is the owner and operator of McVicker Pickles . When she can sneak away from the kitchen, she likes to hop on the J down to Virgil’s and play jukebox hero while sampling Gillian’s latest cocktail inventions.

Brew Your Own Bitters  $88
style=

Bitters. Originally sold as stomach tonics and health cure-alls, they have become an indispensable part of cocktail crafting for as long as the craft has existed. Angustura Bitters has been around since 1824, Peychaud’s was started in a New Orleans Apothacary in 1830, and ever since, the recipes have been kept a closely guarded secret. Fancy cocktail bars create their own bitters in a variety of flavors, and now so can you.

In this class you will be introduced to each of the common (and some of the uncommon) ingredients used to make bitters. You will be able to sample individual infusions including Wormwood, Tonka Bean, and Chinchona Bark (and tons of others), before combining ingredients to make three different varieties of bitters to take home with you (Finished and usable roughly 2-3 weeks after the class). 

After sealing up your bitters to allow them to infuse, the class will sample and discuss three different cocktails that have been designed to take advantage of each type of bitters you have just made. Conversations and cocktails will ensue until the class is over. 

This class is priced to reflect the large amount of ingredients, herbs and alcohol needed to create bitters. The class will be very fun and informative, and you’ll work with over 15 different herbs and ingredients as well as learn how to make several high end craft cocktails along with the bottles of bitters you take home.

Supplies and prerequisites: 21+ ONLY as alcohol is used in the brewing of bitters. No supplies will be required and all herbs, alcohol and containers will be provided. It is recommended that prospective students like the idea of having cocktails as well as the bitters, as much of the conversation based around use and flavors will revolve around trying the cocktails (So, sorry teetotalers, there are probably other, more enjoyable classes for you).

Teacher Bio: Brendan Heath is a Taos, New Mexico born son of two artists. He spent years travelling the world and eventually landed in New York where he began seriously bartending, working at the AOC Bistro in Park Slope, Brooklyn before spending several years attempting to open a large bar of his own in lower Manhattan. After a winter season back in New Mexico, working as General Manager of the The Bavarian Bar and Lodge on the ski slopes of his hometown, Brendan decided that it was time to give the West Coast a try and moved to San Francisco. Since moving here, he has been working for several years at the Thieves bars (Mostly at Whiskey Thieves) as well as starting his own leatherworking company, Terminus Est Leather, and teaching classes at workshop. Say hi, he likes to talk about everything.
