What you'll learn in this screen printing class:

This is a fun Introduction to Fabric Printing that begins looking at the most common methods of printing on t-shirts and fabrics today. Different inks and printing technologies are examined along with workflows for getting hand drawn illustrations and computer graphics onto screens and then fabric.

Participants will see first hand the process for getting images onto screens using revolutionary Japanese screen mesh with no chemicals or photo emulsion fluids.

Attendees will be guided to create their own art or design that's then used for making a screen and printing at the workshop. The inks used are non-toxic and water based. The products are the same used by kindergartens and fashion professionals.

All attendees will do hands-on printing onto either cotton t-shirts or cotton bags they take home. Also they get a pamphlet covering the workshop lesson and a certificate of completion.

Please note: 
  • Hand-out provided.
  • Wear comfortable casual clothing

Question from Woojin A.
Would I be allowed to bring a couple of more bags/t-shirts of my own to print? Also, when printing, are we using one color or allowed to use more than one color?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Woojin! Yes, students can bring a couple of bags/shirts extra and print on them. Recommended! Only the school ask it just be a few or in this case a couple of each.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The screen that the school makes from a student's graphic design (they provide in advance) is used for printing one color during the workshop. The students get to keep the screen so on their own can use it later with any color ink they desire. If the student would like to print a few prints with a different color - wash screen - re-use with a new color, in this instance we will do what we can to accommodate the student i.e.

Question from Anonymous
Could one potentially bring like a photocopy of a 4x6 photograph and count on being able to make prints it from this lesson?
Answer from anonymous
Great question. We generally accept art that is line art, hard black on a white background. Our thermal screens, react to shading and half tones as full black and that alters the photo, in unpredictable ways. Shading and half tones impact the screen and reverse polorization where dark and light reverse. This sounds like a good test for us to do here at Super Silk Screen with different photos, video and post results. Thank you for the question! Ian, Super Silk Screen

Question from Daniela T.
How many prints do we need to bring to class? Do the images have to be printed a specific/ special way?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! If you have a design, bring it as a regular black and white photocopy with the image not more than 6inches x 6inches. This means the graphic is one color - black on white regular copy paper. If attendees do not bring or have a graphics right now, the school have special carbon pen markers here that students can use onsite to create designs and then make screens from them and print on fabric. Hope this helps!

Question from Daniela T.
Are all materials included with the cost of the class displayed here or students are required to bring there own materials?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Daniela! Students are asked to dress casually. Students will receive a pamphlet covering basic fabric printing techniques and a list of many NYC arts suppliers. Students will also have a choice of printing a cotton T-shirt or bag at the workshop that they take home - the materials are provided at the workshop and included in the course fee.

The instructor was very friendly and informing. He offered more than one t-shirt and helped me to print on my own products. However, the class itself was not I was expecting. If you just want to have custom t-shirts, definitely go for this class. But if you want to learn more about screen printing and printing on fabric, I wouldn't recommend this class. The instructor basically did the whole process for me and I didn't learn much. The studio was little too small and wasn't very organized.

Per his request, I signed my 16 year old son up for this class as he wished to learn how to print his own designs on T-shirts. He came back home with a stack of printed shirts and an enthusiast review of the class: The owner/teacher allowed him to print more T-shirts than normally allowed and he spent 30 minutes longer with my son as well after class officially finished, so the additional T-Shirts could be printed. Very nice! I highly recommend this class -- for the quality of the teaching and outcome of product as well as for the friendliness and compassion of the owner/teacher. Thank you Super Silk Screen, Inc.!!

Hi, I really enjoyed this class. Ian, the instructor, was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. The studio work space was organized, well lit with a creative vibe. The studio was conveniently located only a block or 2 from the subway. I was able to make a screen and actually use the screen to imprint a tee shirt. I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to learn the fundamentals of screen printing.

This was an excellent opportunity to have a hands-on experience of silk screen printing. The method taught for putting the image on the screen involved a copy machine, a lighting unit and special screen. No messy emulsion fluids. Ian was generous with his time and answered all questions. And I was able to make professional looking tshirts that night.

The class was terrific! Ian was fun, nice and super informative. I’m so glad I took the class; it was a new way of printing that I didn’t know about. I now prefer it over the emulsion/photo light traditional way. Will definitely use my screen and have more made in the future!
