Join us at Shop Slow with Mikaela Friedman & learn how to make your own screen print! Together, we'll use second-hand embroidery hoops to build a screen and then print onto your clothes. You can prep a drawing to bring to class or use one of Mikaela's designs.

What to bring to class:
  • Before you come to class, please have a sketch of your design ready! No design? No problem! We'll have some stencils for you to choose from if you don't want to make your own. 
    • Make sure your design is no larger than 7.5"x7.5" wide. It must fit within the screen or you will need to re-draw the design on-site
    • Your design should be simple & easy for you to re-draw / paint. Words, fine detail, and fine lines are not recommended. Please see photos for examples
  • Bring a garment to print on, preferably made from denim or natural fiber! Canvas or denim material will be best for first time printers. 

Choosing the right garment: When selecting your piece of clothing, opt for light natural fibers such as linen, cotton or very light denim. Steer clear of overly stretchy materials, fabric with a loose weave, or oversized items. Shirts, tote bags, and shorts are all acceptable options. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
