"Whats Love Got To BREW With It?" Brew It Yourself: Intro To Homebrewing OFFSITE LOCATION $100
"
/
PLEASE NOTE THIS CLASS TAKES PLACE AT THE TEACHERS BREWERY AT 726 15TH STREET

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: Sunday February 14th 11:00am-5:00pm
Session 2: Wednesday March 2nd 7:00pm-9:00pm

Screen Printing For Newbies VALENTINES DAY EDITION $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. WE CURRENTLY DO NOT OFFER CUSTOM SCREENS SINCE IT IS SOMETHING YOU LEARN IN THE CLASS, BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE ONE, PLEASE EMAIL US FOR INFO AND WE CAN LINK YOU UP WITH INFO TO CREATE ONE.

There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing.

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.

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.

Letterpress X Modern Calligraphy Workshop  $90
"/
VERY IMPORTANT: Western Editions has moved to the East Bay into an artist co-op, but don’t worry our workshops are just as awesome as ever. Bigger space, more sunshine, plenty of parking...what else could you ask for? MacArthur Bart is just over a mile up the road and there is a FREE Emery-go-round shuttle that runs every 10-15 minutes and will deliver you to our door, or pretty close at least. The Hollis Line drops you at 45th and Hollis or the Powell Line drops you at 40th and Hollis. We are now located at 1420 45th Street #40, Emeryville, CA 94608 in the big red garage roll up door! Please contact Western Editions directly at westerneditions@gmail.com if you have any further questions.

In Letterpress x Modern Calligraphy Workshop you will learn techniques for both letterpress printing and modern calligraphy. Does it get any better than that?? You will work with Taylor and Erin from Western Editions to learn a bit of letterpress history and the basic set up and printing on a 800 pound Vandercook Proofing Press. You will also work with Queeny of the Modern Calligraphy MeetUp group and get an introduction to modern calligraphy techniques.

You will have a chance to practice your hand-styles and develop your own calligraphy technique. In addition, you will letterpress 10 pre-designed calligraphy notecards. During the workshop you’ll see how to turn your calligraphy into a digital file that can then be letterpress printed. You will leave with 10 letterpress notecards and all the supplies to continue with your calligraphy (paper, ink and quill). Not to mention super inspired!

Queeny Lu’s Bio:
Queeny Lu is the traveler behind the calligraphy and with her passion for travel and calligraphy, she aspires to create custom calligraphed pieces of the highest quality in hand calligraphy. Having started learning Arabic Calligraphy for a couple of years while studying Arabic, she naturally transitioned over to pointed-pen calligraphy and is a co-organizer for a Meetup.com group called San Francisco Modern Calligraphy. If you need hand calligraphy to make a one-of-a-kind wedding, fun prints for your home, or chalkboard art for your business, Queeny has developed skills of pointed pen calligraphy, different language scripts, watercolor, illustration and chalkboard art.

Western Editions is Erin Fong and Taylor Reid, two friends who met while living in San Francisco s Western Addition (...get it?) and have relocated across the Bay to an artist co-operative in sunny Emeryville, California. Both Erin and Taylor have been printing since 2007 with a background ranging from commercial letterpress printshops to fine art letterpress and book arts. The stars aligned and both landed in San Francisco at the same time, where they met and figured out…wait for it…that they had both learned letterpress in the same dusty old library at the University of Nevada, Reno! Though at different times, Erin and Taylor both fell in love with letterpress in the same room, on the same machine! MAGIC, we know!

In our new Woodworking classes, we partner with the ace woodworkers & fun peeps at Wood Thumb. Classes vary and are offered at their badass headquarters and woodworking studio in Soma. They’ve unleashed the secrets, showing you how to make some of their top products they sell so you walk out with a finished product and jedi with them on using basic woodworking tools, power and non. Each class we offer features a different project, so feel free to take one or take them all as we offer over 6 and more always coming.

Triangle Shelf Project: Looking to embrace your inner lumberjack? Join Christopher, of Wood Thumb in SOMA, for an evening of woodworking where we ll cover basic tools and techniques, and you’ll go home with a finished productt of a Triangle Shelf for this class. Stop buying your gifts when you can learn to make them! Or proudly boast about the wooden creations you made around your house. We have seen these amesome shelves all over boho style stores and major retailers but with a price tage of $80 & up. They are adorable anywhere, ideal for crystals, jewelry, putting your trinkets and do dads that mean the world to you on display. Best part is after you take the class, you can make more at home and create an awesome design wall with several.

Teacher Bio: Wood Thumb was started by two brothers, Christopher and David, who set out to make a living by building beautifully designed products that embody sustainability, craftsmanship, and ingenuity. For the holidays growing up, their gifts always needed to be handmade which led to the creative, maker lifestyle they lead today. They re self-taught woodworkers who have really mastered the craft from the years of custom work and running Wood Thumb. We have enjoyed their awesome wooden fold up booth at Renegade Craft Fair for years and amazing wooden bow ties (we even spied Questlove in one a few weeks ago).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. WE CURRENTLY DO NOT OFFER CUSTOM SCREENS SINCE IT IS SOMETHING YOU LEARN IN THE CLASS, BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE ONE, PLEASE EMAIL US FOR INFO AND WE CAN LINK YOU UP WITH INFO TO CREATE ONE.
