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. There is always an experienced, friendly, and knowledgeable screen print volunteer to answer and assist you.

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, 8/3/22, 4-8 PM

Friday, 8/12/22, 2-6 PM

Saturday, 8/27/22, 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 info@theveraproject.org, or calling us during office hours (Tuesday-Friday from 1-5, or Saturday at 12-4) at 206 956 8372, letting 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 Kinko’s nearby), ink, and the paper/textiles you want to screen on.
