- DIY Screen PrintingPush/Pull, Seattle, WA$60.00
This is a paid class that requires registration. Sign up here.
Join Maxx to learn how to screen print! You'll create your own 5" x 7" design using screen writing fluid and screen blocking fluid to paint on your art. Screens are custom made by Maxx and she'll show you how you can make your own too.
Start putting your art on patches, clothes, stickers and more. Class is 4 hours and includes one long and one short break for drying time. Once your screen is ready, you'll be able to print your design during the class time on paper or fabric. You're welcome to bring in your own small items to print. All materials and tools are provided and at the end you get to take your screen home to keep printing!
DIY Screen Printing workshops take place on the last Saturday of the month, from 11am-3pm.
Maxx taught herself how to screen print over a decade ago and has been printing works for herself and others on paper, fabric and stickers ever since. You can find her printing on many of the items at Push/Pull.
