    Finding the building was fairly easy. There's a parking lot which is helpful and public transportation (bus) is about a 5 minute walk. The space you walk in is a shared studio, so you'll most likely bump into other artists working there. The risography class was in a separate room. Our instructor, Logan, was informative and straightforward when explaining everything we needed to know in regards to the machine and making our own pieces. Overall a cool class to take no matter what skill set you are coming in with. I didn't have exposure to the art form until I came in!

    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 was my first time doing letterpress and I fell a little bit in love. Veronica was a great teacher and struck a nice balance between providing group instruction and giving us space to explore/create individually. Spudnik is seems like a cool, collaborative art space — can’t wait to go back for another class!

    What a great class! I'm so pleased with my clamshell box! Nicolette was a great instructor ... friendly, clear in her descriptions and patient. She made time to go around to check all of our work so that she knew we were on the right track.

    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.

    What a great learning experience in screenprinting. Had no clue what to expect and that made it even more fun. The image you select is important and I wish I had more knowledge prior. I did email and that helped to select. A more complex image is probably not the best. The teacher made plenty of time available to each student. We all were able to print on different materials. Great experience!

    I really enjoyed this class. The teacher had experience and was very friendly. Most of the box pieces were pre-cut but this saved time and she did a good job explaining how to figure out the measurements for doing your own cutting. And we did get to practice cutting by trimming some of our own pieces-- is tedious work, so I'm glad we had them ready to go. The box I made turned out beautifully and I feel like I would be comfortable trying to make another one on my own. I might also try some of the other classes offered by this center.
    The class was very long, I'm glad I brought a snack. There is no where nearby to get food or coffee, FYI.
    My only disappointment is we didn't have time to make the "perfect bound book" that was supposed to go with the box. We ran out of time. Although making the class longer would be too much. I had fun but was very ready to be done when it was over.
