In this class, we will learn how screen printing works, and you will get to print your very own item! We focus on printing on flat items, like paper. This class is not specifically about printing on t-shirts, although, a lot of the process translates.

This class includes a lecture, a demo, and hands-on experience. We cover equipment and materials, getting the artwork ready, preparing and burning the screen, reclaiming the screen and using the equipment to print the design on a special item. At the end of this class, Dabblers will understand how to put their artwork onto a printable surface to the delight of all family & friends who receive them.

This class is perfect for artists, students, the curious, creatives, and those who want to set up their own home studio. No experience necessary. If you can pull a squeegee towards you, this class is for you.

Materials to bring

Bring clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and a camera or notebook, if you want.

What will be provided

We provide ink, materials to print on, equipment and tools.

    Arna did an excellent job of "simplifying" the art of screen printing.
    Over-all, for someone like me to walk away without taking notes, I have an excellent clear understanding
    of what the process entails, I'm impressed! She really did a great job not over-complicating things.
    I am glad I took this class!

    Very informative class, and the teacher really knows what she is doing. Somewhat of an awkward space to take a class in, but the instructor has to share a space with other businesses. Wear comfortable shoes, as it is a two hour class and you stand the whole time.

    Great short class that will help you decide if screen printing is something you want to dive into. Not overly technical, but covers most of the basics in a very relaxed setting. It made me want to learn more; and find a dedicated workspace!

    This class was exactly what dabble is about - a fun way to dip my toes into the process with a person well versed in the activity. The instruction plus hands on approach was spot on.

    Arna's class is great! I had some screen printing supplies I had bought a while back but been too afraid to try by myself. She walked us through a full print from making the screen to reclaiming it. We got to try every step and now I can't wait to try it at home. Bonus was getting to see her collection of work and how she did it!

    I knew nothing about screen printing before attending this class, but, as a graphic designer, I've always been curious. This class had a great balance of instruction, hands-on participation, and beginners' references for continuing to practice screen printing. I'd recommend this class to anyone who wants to try it once or wants to learn how to set up a screen printing space for his/her own small projects.

    Arna was great and I felt like I walked away with a good basic introduction to screen printing! I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for an introductory class (it was focused on how to set it up to do at home).

    Great class. The instructor was very knowledgeable. Class was a blast. I had screen printed before, but she still taught me so much. This class was focused on screen printing on posters not t-shirts. That's something I've never considered. Her work is truly art.

    I have previous silk screen experience so this class was just a refresher for me as well as a tool to inspire a colleague who needed to understand the process and get his hands dirty. The class was good but I feel those who knew nothing got much more than I did. The description wasn't off but my expectations were.
