Why not screen-print some Halloween decorations, impress with screen printed table settings for your Thanksgiving dinner, or make hand printed Christmas cards! The possibilities are endless. If you or your friends are interested in learning how to setup and screen print at home, this workshop is for you.

Saturday, October 18th 12:30 – 5:00pm  SOLD OUT
