Event Overview

Convert your own drawing or design to a collection of hand-printed wearable items in this energetic and informative one-day workshop. Printing an assortment of t-shirts or totebags is practical, fun and incredibly gratifying!


Students will bring to the workshops with a bold black and white drawing, a high-contrast photo, or a digital design. While .AI or .PSD files are great, we welcome students to bring anything from text typed in Microsoft Word to photocopies. After students refine the artwork (as needed) to be “print-ready”, student will use a pre-coated photographic screen and mix their own custom ink color. Everyone should bring five items of their choosing to print. As long as they are fabric and flat, we can help you print on it! Shirts, tote bags, tea towels, bandanas, and thrift store jean jackets will all work great. Leave with a sample for an Etsy store, a surprise gift for a friend, or an eco-friendly totebag!


For those who love this introduction to screenprinting, our 8-week Screenprinting Explorations class will round out your skills and allow you print independently through our Open Studio program!


This class typically fills 2+ weeks in advance. Early registration is suggested.

What to Bring

1-color design, preferably digital (upload to e-mail or bring a USB drive). 5 fabric items.

What's Provided

All printmaking supplies.

    This was a fun, creative, and interesting workshop. In hindsight, I wish I had taken more time to develop my design and plan out the items on which it would be screen-printed. An ideal workshop for hammering out some gifts or shop/band/Etsy merchandise. It's only March, but I already have five Xmas gifts figured out. My only advice for the class: have two teachers available, at least for the beginning hour. The one teacher was pulled in so many ways as students got started that it resulted in lulls. Other than that, though, I'd highly recommend.

    This class was awesome. It was so great not only learning about how screenprinting works but being able to take a design we brought in and bring it into fruition. Our instructor was excellent and very patient. I want to take more classes based on this workshop!

    There were a lot of classroom issues during the class (the electricity went out multiple times, the computers and printers weren't working...) but Robert did an excellent job of trouble-shooting. There's a lot of wait time while other students do things, so I recommend bringing a book or something to do while you wait.
