Workshops

workshopsBushwick Print Lab is pleased to offer Workshop Opportunities for Individuals and Groups of all ages.

Taking an Orientation Workshop is highly recommended for any printer who aims to be self sufficient in our space. We do our best to pass on all of the tricks of the trade we’ve picked up through years of troubleshooting for successful printing on a broad array of mediums!

FOR INDIVIDUALS or GROUPS OF 2-3 PEOPLE:

The individualized hands-on workshop is for beginner to somewhat experienced printers and averages 2+ hours. You will be guided through the general process of preparing a screen and printing a one-color image on 10-20 pieces in our communal workspace. BPL provides each participant with the following: 1 film of their image, 1 screen rental for the day (which can be purchased at the end of the class for $25-$50), and water-based inks and tools for printing. Participants may bring their own materials to print on and/or BPL can help participants order wholesale. Pricing is as follows (not including blank paper/apparel):

One-color workshop = $150 (adtl people = $25-$50 per person)

Two-color Workshop* = $225 (adtl people = $50-$75 per person)

* In order to take the two-color workshop you must demonstrate prior experience with one-color printing or already have taken our one-color workshop.

To get started… please select one of the options below! Keep in mind we need a weeks time to arrange and schedule classes so please plan ahead! (Workshop participants must select paper OR apparel to print on. We cannot do both in one class unless special circumstances are discussed and priced beforehand):

FOR GROUPS — Currently unavailable due to virus restrictions

Whether you are looking to expand a creative mind through an after school enrichment program, or looking for a team activity for brand development, screen printing is a fun and engaging group activity that can facilitate team building in marketing/design, school groups, baby/bridal showers, and celebrations of all types! Bushwick Print Lab can accommodate a gathering that results in the production of your chosen 1-color imagery/text on apparel, tote, or paper.  We’re happy to work with organizers to make any one-color design + printing project come to fruition. Pricing is determined on a case-by-case basis. Email info@bushwickprintlab.org to introduce the details of your ideal workshop!

For optimal circumstances, workshops are arranged for groups of up to 8 people but larger groups can be accommodated.
