new class date at Nonpareil!

Jackie Lams at Northville Art House class

I'm really excited to announce a new class I'm teaching!

Please come join me at Nonpareil in Ann Arbor on November 6 from 10:30am-4pm.

Nonpareil is a new shop by the incredibly talented garment creator Michelle Moenssen. I'm incredibly honored to be teaching there and I do hope you will join me!

The class is Basic Screen Printing using Thermofax Screens. As it is an extended amount of time (usually the class is 3 hours and this one will be 5 hours), there will be plenty of time to work on projects. I'll also be doing a demo on printing t-shirts, printing on paper and composing art cloth.

So here's all the info and I'd love it if you would join me!


When: Saturday November 6, 2010
Time: 10:30am - 4pm (there will be a 1/2 hour break for lunch)
Where: Nonpareil
Cost: $80 (includes one screen & one bottle of paint of your choice)

Register for class by contacting Nonpareil at 734-327-1837.

Class description: Learn four basic screen printing techniques that you can use to apply to your own projects. The class will cover solid printing, scuff printing (produces ghost images), clean repeat printing and multiple color printing. Students will have access to Lynn's extensive stash of screens to experiment with during class, and students will leave with a screen and bottle of paint. (Please visit Lynn's etsy shop PRIOR to class to choose your screen & paint color so she can have what you want. Screens cannot be made on site.)

As this class allows for extended work time, there will be tutorials on printing t-shirts, printing on paper and composition of art cloth.

Supply list: 100% cotton fabric (4-6 yards - bring fabric that has color and prints, white fabric is fun but color fabric gives more exciting results!), any projects you'd like to print on (t-shirts, tote bags, heavy weight paper, etc.), garbage bag to cover the table and 1" or 1.5" wide sponge brushes (10-12)


Hope to see you there! And if you are interested in scheduling a class with me, please give a holler, I'd love to join you! :)
