About this Event

About this Event

In this beginning course you will learn the basics of screenprinting. Participants will bring a prepared image and we will provide all the materials, tools and training. Learn the protocol of our printshop and darkroom, as well as health and safety standards for screenprinting. Turn your one-color image into a screen and print an edition of posters, greeting cards or even t-shirts! With the completion of this beginner course, students will be prepared to take more specialized, intermediate courses. Students may also choose to take this beginner course again with a personalized emphasis on multilayer printing. Our classroom environment is welcoming to all skill levels and we strive to make our shop accessible to new and experienced printers alike. A materials fee covers paper, ink, use of a screen, and other consumables. An outline of the workshop and materials list can be found at

Please note: We require all visitors to the Soapbox wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status. The instructor reserves the right to ask you to leave if you do not comply.
