Workhorse to Host Two-Day November Screen-Printing Workshop
Workhorse Products, Phoenix, will host a beginner’s workshop on Nov. 4-5 on how to start a T-shirt screen-printing business.
This hands-on class will be taught by Terry Combs, a veteran screen printer and educator with more than 30 years of experience printing thousands of shirts and training students.
The first day will include an explanation of what a screen is and, by the end of the second day, all attendees will have pulled a squeegee and printed a full-color, simulated process design on a black shirt. Students also will degrease and coat screens, set up a multicolor job, and learn about printing plastisol transfers, specialty inks, art preparation and more.
In addition to the technical aspects of screen printing, Combs also will cover how to start a business, find customers and other day-to-day business topics. The class will present a lot of information in a fun, conversational, interactive learning environment.
The class will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. both days. The cost is $395 for the first student and $195 for additional students from the same company. Workhorse Products is located at 3730 East Southern Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85040. Register for the class by clicking here. — J.L.
