    ART103: Silkscreen Printing Basics - SBU

    In this hands-on class, learn the basics of silkscreen printing. TechShop makes it easy by using vinyl stencils rather than photo-emulsion. Prepare a vinyl stencil, transfer onto a screen, apply ink to fabric through screen, and then heat set the ink. It’s that simple.

    Want to print a t-shirt using your own artwork? Bring a simple black and white drawing that will be cut by hand. Participants who have passed the Vinyl Cutter Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class may bring in a pre-cut design to use. Otherwise, choose from several designs provided. Get ready to start making custom silkscreened t-shirts!

    Project: Custom t-shirt or tote bag

    Prerequisites: None

    Equipment access: Silkscreen station

    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 silkscreen station 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.

    Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.

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