WKS1260: Handbuilt Side Table

Build a beautiful midcentury modern-styled side table with resident furniture artisan Michael Gutierrez. A fusion of contemporary design with traditional woodworking, this hands-on class will empower students to create their own stunning furniture pieces.

Some parts will be pre-cut using our ShopBot. Students will learn how to properly use hand tools to shape and complete their piece. Each student will have the opportunity to customize their project and will take home a hand-built wooden side table. This is an excellent workshop for anyone wanting a project oriented woodworking class.

This class has no pre-requisites. Basic woodworking knowledge is recommended. All supplies will be provided and are included in the cost of the class.

WKS131: Screen Printing + 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! Students should come with a design file in hand, or at least in mind.

Next, it's on to 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!
