Have you ever wanted to learn screen printing to do your own fabric or paper projects? This is the class for you!
It seems like those who work in the screen printing business want you to think there is some special dark magic taking place to put your art on a shirt. But our teacher has been in the industry for almost 20 years and is a maker who wants to teach you how you can screen print at home.
Who Should Come?
This is a beginner’s introduction to screen printing for the hobbyist. You don’t have to have any experience; only a desire to print your very first shirt. This class is intended to help you see if this is something you would be interested in doing on your own.
What You Will Learn
You will learn about the basic equipment for the hobbyist like:
- Heat gun
- DIY press
- Screen printing ink
The skills learned in the class include:
- How to properly place your shirt on the platen
- Proper off contact of screen from garment
- Loading the screen with ink
- Cleaning the screen when done
- Curing the ink on the garment
Because of the time involved, we will not actually be making the screens and burning them in class. If you find that screen printing is something you would like to learn more about, then we can set up a class to go through the screen creation process.
