Contact

Please get in touch with the organizer by responding to the event announcement email sent out to the list. The eventbrite organizer contact goes to the wrong place.

Eligibility

This event is open to anyone who has taken a screen printing class at Artisan's, or who is an experienced printer and has already been checked off in the shop. (You can also get checked off at the shop night.) You do not need to be an Artisan's member with access during the event hours to attend. If you are a day-pass member, you do not need to use a day pass to attend.

Materials

Emulsion will be available at open shop, for $2 a coat.

For screens, ink, and paper: these are available from the shop at reasonable rates, but in limited sizes and mesh counts (screens), colors (ink), and sizes and hues (paper). If you have something specific you'd like to print, you're best off bringing your own ink and paper. If you need solid results, you''re best off bringing your own screens. Screens will need to be reclaimed at the end of the night.

Costs

If the donation or materials costs are a financial burden (and keeping you away), just let the shop know.

Cancellations and Waitlists

Plans change. If you do need to cancel, please try to release your ticket. You can visit this page to find some instructions.

If you find the event is full, sign up for the waitlist; almost every shop night has had someone cancel.

Getting Here and Parking

There have been significant changes to parking recently, in which lot Artisan's can use, the number of spaces available, and how we identify Artisan's vehicles.

Whenever possible, visitors should try to use public transit, walk, or bike. If you are coming in a vehicle, and need a place to park, you can find out more about registering your vehicle and other rules here:

*A $5-10 donation is suggested for attending. Your donations support the shop, and allow us to pay for supplies and new equipment.

**Please be considerate of limited shop capacity, and try to make sure others have time to print. Users should not try to do production runs at open shop night, and should be open to negotiating a flexible schedule in conjunction with others.
