Open Sessions

Vera’s screen print studio offers four-hour Open Sessions where individuals who have completed the introductory class 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, consider privately renting the studio at Tier Three.

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 April 3, 4-8 PM (fully booked, email for waitlist)

Friday April 12, 2-6 PM (fully booked, email for waitlist)

Saturday April 27, 12-4 PM (just screen prep)

Wednesday May 1, 4-8 PM (just paper printing and screen prep)

Friday May 10, 2-6 PM

To sign up for an Open Session, please email with the following information:

  1. Your name
  2. Confirmation that you have taken the SP 101 class
  3. What slot you’d like to book: Paper printing, Fabric Printing, or just screen prep
  4. Once you receive confirmation of your session, pay the Square invoice online.

One 4-hour Open Session costs $10. If you are a member at Vera, you receive a 25% discount, just mention it in your email!

We are not currently offering new punch cards, but hope to do so in the future. We will honor existing punch cards. If you are unable to pay your Square invoice online, please let us know over email, and we can arrange an alternate payment method. 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.
