Express yourself, rep your band, spread your brand, or simply bring color to the everyday through multicolor textile printing. Learn to use a t-shirt press (octopus rig) and a flash unit. Design your three-color textile silkscreen for tote bags, t-shirts, and other textiles, then master printing intricate designs using our silkscreen octopus and flash dryer. Bring up to 15 items to print on and your design; we will provide all the rest.

Introductory silkscreen experience required. This class expects that students will arrive already knowing how to independently plan and construct a multi-layer screen print, the basics of registration, ink handling and general printing best practices. Students who are not sure if they can do all this independently should enroll first in Screen Print Now! One day intensive, or in Silkscreen: Fundamental to Experimental.
