Open Sessions

Vera’s Screenprint Studio offers four-hour Open Sessions where individuals who have completed the introductory class & fill out the studio participation agreement may use our professional screen print lab to work on their own projects. Our Open Sessions are looked over by a volunteer moderator, who can provide you with advice and guidance for anything taught in our Screen Printing 101 class. If you are looking for more in-depth help and guidance on a specific project, please email us about paid private teaching sessions.

Open sessions are typically scheduled for the 1st Wednesday (4-8 PM), 2nd Friday (2-6 PM), and 4th Saturday (12-4 PM) of each month. Our next Open Session dates are:

Wednesday, June 7, 4-8 PM (fabric printing only)

Friday, June 16, 2-6 PM (paper printing and screen prep only)

Saturday, June 24, 12-4 PM

Wednesday, July 5, 4-8 PM

Friday, July 14, 2-6 PM

Saturday, July 22, 12-4 PM

Our studio is available for use during our Open Sessions:

To sign up you must have taken the Screen Print 101 class. Sign up by sending us an email to Let us know which date you’re interested in booking, and if  you will be printing on t-shirts, paper, or just prepping screens.

Open sessions are $10 per session (we are not currently offering new punch cards, but hope to do so in the future).

The cost of the open session fee includes: access to the facilities, on-premises use of VERA’s screens, emulsion, emulsion remover, and packing tape.  You just bring your project’s image on a transparency (there is a FedEx nearby), ink, and the paper/textiles you want to screen on.
