About this Workshop:

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to screenprint your own design in a repetitive fashion onto a 44” x 72” piece of paper or fabric. Working in a tag team fashion with large screens, you will pair up with another student to work together in learning how to design into a grid and carry out a sequence of a printed pattern. 

Level: All levels welcome – Introduction to Screenprinting on Fabric, or similar experience (6 hours)  is helpful, but not required. 

Registration extended until May 29! and includes a materials fee to cover consumable materials provided in class, including a brand new silkscreen for you to keep. Students will also need to supply additional items of their own—please see the class materials list below for information.

“This was such a great and unusual class!  I’ve been wanting to learn how to print repeat patterns for a while and this class was extremely well paced and well constructed.  Eliza did a great job making sure that we understood the process, and the time we had was used very well.  Everyone came away with great projects and it was fun to work collaboratively.”
