Super Silk Screen, Inc in Astoria Queens New York makes silk screens from the artwork supplied by artists who then take the screens and do their own printing when they want.
Workshop classes are given Tuesday and Thursday nights on Introductory fabric printing.
I was so excited to learn about fabric printing. I was able to transfer an original design for "The Kong Show!" a comedy variety show that I coproduce, onto a silkscreen to create a fun t-shirt design. I was able to use the same design for a mouse pad and now I want to try sweatshirts and hoodies, too. Now I have great gifts that I can give to fans and friends. And the printing is of such a high quality that I have also sold t-shirts too. The instructor Ian Snow is very knowledgable and I enjoyed the workshop. I'm looking forward to the next one. I have several design ideas that I want to try. The best part of the course is that I now have my own screen of the design. This is an excellent course. Anyone from artists, to sports teams, to designers creating their own brand, could benefit from this course. I can see it as a fun kid's activity too. How cool it would be for kids to take a drawing made at home or at school and transform it into a t-shirt design!
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!
