Screenprinting with Holding Pattern!

Designed by Holding Pattern

Mike and Brian from HOLDING PATTERN IS BACK!!! They'll be here on Thursday,
March 24th
for another Screenprinting Workshop! Hard to believe, but they made
even more improvements to their already awesome workshop. Students will leave
with the know-how and tools to screenprint as soon as they go home. We had them
here last summer and it was an amazing night, click here to check out the workshop.

Holding pattern will provide a pre-burned screen for the workshop, but students will
still have the option to have a custom screen (which Holding Pattern will burn for you in
advance) for you for an additional $40.

We're in the process of getting in touch with students that have been on the waiting list.
So email us at to get on the list (this class fills up fast and space
is limited) and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

REGISTER: $299 (with the option of having a custom screen for an additional $40)

NOTES: Because of the popularity and prep time required of this workshop, this
class is NON-REFUNDABLE after MARCH 17th; if you are unable to attend please
notify us immediately so that we can get another student in. Thanks!

Please join us on Thursday, February 24th for a workshop with Tish Brewer, (who also
taught the super fun Paper Sculpture, Paper Marbling and Jacob's Ladder Workshop) for
a FAN-FOLDED PAPER LAMP WORKSHOP! We were at Tish's studio a few weeks ago
and saw this light hanging in her space and immediately asked her to teach this workshop.
So gorgeous upclose and would look perfect above a dining table or in a cozy reading nook.

workshop, you'll fold recycled books into various shapes to make a hanging lamp.
(Additional cord sets can be purchased for an additional $5. paperback books will be provided,
but bring your own if you have some you're looking to up-cycle!)
