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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
