Intro to Screenprinting Workshop - October 29


Class Description

Ever wanted to learn how to screen print your own designs from start to finish?


The Hive Printing’s Introduction to Screen Printing workshop is an immersive, one-day class that takes both the complete beginner and those with previous experience through a series of taught techniques from the fundamental designing and preparing of artwork films to screen printing your design.


Our workshop is designed to give you a comprehensive and in-depth working knowledge of the screen printing process. Workshop attendance is limited to 5-6 people so we can provide you with individualized training and guidance as you learn the printing process. This is a creative course and we celebrate experimentation! A choice of colors and garments for you to print on is also offered. We don’t expose any screens prior to the class, so come with personal ideas and projects, or just an inquiring mind!


You will leave with an understanding of the screen printing process and either 2 tote bags or 2 t-shirts printed with your own one-colour design.


All methods are shown through live demonstrations, in a well run and established studio.
