WKS: Molded Chocolate Treats: Valentine's Day!

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we invite you and your sweetie to make your very own chocolate and chocolate molds using TechShop's vacuum forming machine. You will customize your chocolate bar design using stencils and shapes, then, use the vacuum former to make a food-safe plastic mold. Next, you will pour delicious molten chocolate into your finished mold. You will make your very own chocolate bars and walk away with a custom mold to use again at home. The best part? Enjoying your handmade chocolate bar just in time for the holiday season!

Materials are provided in class, but students are welcome to bring in different small objects to possibly mold. The instructor will review them for moldability.

This Make-it, Take-it workshop is open to both members and non-members of TechShop.

Note: This is not a Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class. To learn more about vacuum forming, check out our Vacuum Forming SBU, offered regularly.

WKS131: Screen Printing and Vinyl Cutter SBUs

Vinyl cutting and screen printing go hand in hand, and this fun workshop will show you how!

First, you'll learn how to safely operate the vinyl cutter and use it to make custom stencils to suit all your screen printing needs. When using the vinyl cutter, as opposed to hand-cutting your stencils, the possibilities for easily making intricate designs is infinite. You'll also learn how to import your own vector designs from graphics programs to use the vinyl cutter to create cool stickers, custom signage, and more! Be sure to come with a design file in hand, or at least in mind.

Next, it's onto the screen printing station. You'll learn how to prep your stencil, transfer it to a screen, mask the screen, then apply ink through the stencil and screen onto your shirt. It's a much quicker, easier process than photo emulsion, and it cures quickly, too. You'll spend the last few minutes of class heat-setting your shirt, and voila! You'll be the proud owner of your very own, handmade screen printed shirt that is sure to be an eye catcher.

Once you have taken and successfully passed this class, you will be cleared to use the screen printing station AND vinyl cutter.

Project: Custom screen printed shirt

Prerequisites: None!

Equipment access: Silkscreen station and vinyl cutter

Safety: Closed-toe shoes are required.

Minimum age: 12

Supervision requirements: During class, all 12- to 15-year-old students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the class.

When using the screen printing station and/or vinyl cutter outside of class time, 12- to 15-year-old members must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU.

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!
