If you have your own private group of 6: I would love to have you in my studio for a class. Please email me directly to choose a date.
These workshops are open to people who don't necessarily want to know every technical detail about screen printing, but have always wanted to print and make something in one class – and have tons of fun doing it.

How it works:
You will use screens I made especially for the class with designs like birds, trees, patterns, numbers, words etc. I will teach you how to print on supplied paper and fabrics. But you will also be able to print on any items you will bring with you: fabric, clothing (new or old to up-cycle), napkins, wood panels, journals, paper, etc. Got an idea to print on a flat surface you never thought could be printed on? Let me know and we’ll see if we can do it!
As well as using my screens, it can also be a lot of fun using your own images. If you want to print your own images, you will submit your image(s) via email around a week prior to the class. It can be a photo, a drawing, some text, etc. Once I get your image(s), I will refine your design to make it print-ready and I will prepare a screen for you prior to the workshop. Please refer to "Your design" section below for more info.
Print as many things as time allows. Some may want to concentrate on one item, others may want to print tea towels for the whole family – whatever you feel like, this is definitely a stress free studio. The group is small (max. 6 participants) so you can have my full attention or you can work independently.
Wear clothes that are comfortable and can get dirty, printing can get a bit messy especially when you're getting creative! No long hanging sleeves.
Please note that there will be times when you will be less than 6 feet apart from the other students and me. You will also be sharing some screens and tools, hand sanitizer will be provided.

·If you decide to have a screen made with your images at no extra cost, you can send me up to six images to choose from and I will let you know which ones would work best (your favourite song lyrics, a quote, drawings, images of you, of your pet, photos you took of cityscapes, trees, architecture, road sign, street sign, streetcars, animals, plants, birds etc. )
Your final print(s) can be made of one to four designs but all the designs (drawings, words, photos etc.) will need to fit on an 8.5” x 11” page. So the more designs, the smallest they’ll be printed. You can just send me the images as is and I will take care of making them fit in the page. If you choose one image, the print will be around 8" x 10". If you choose two images, the prints will be around 8" x 5" each. If you choose three images, two prints will be 4" x 5" each and one will be 5" x 8". If you choose four images, each print will be around 4" x 5".
Note: if you opt for several small designs instead of one bigger one, you will still be able to print them separately
I will make your image into a black and white high contrast design, the same high contrast found in my designs (no soft shadows).
Email me your image in a JPEG, PSD or PDF format, the higher the resolution the better. I will do the necessary touch ups and send it back to you for approval.
