Hands-on classes for newbies

Posted on Tue, 11 Jan 2005 at 23:44



Are there any courses on the east coast that are similar to the U.S. Screen Institute's "Professional Garment Printing" course? Their "class-in-a-box" product is interesting but I'd prefer a hands-on class setting. Thanks!

Hi Brian,
My name is Pam Blankenship and I work for the Screen Printing Technical Foundation. This is a non-profit research and education organization funded by the Screen Printing industry. We offer two classes here in our Fairfax Virginia facilities that may interest you.

The first one is Screen Making: Basic to Professional, it basically covers the "Screen Making Process" from begin to end. It is geared for all screen makers textile and graphics. Here is a link to information on that class click on the photo documentary that will show you what is covered each of the five days in this course.

The other course we offer that my interest you is our Special Effects: Enhance Your Textile Print. This class is taught by Charlie Taublieb who has been a consultant in out industry for over 20 years. This class is strictly textile based, while the main focus is "Special Effects” the entire screen making process is covered. Here is a link to that class.

The problem with alot of those schools is that most of them sell supplies or software and the reason they are 2-3 days long is because they try and sell you stuff all the time because you're new. And the nonprofit ones still cost more than $800.
And then there are so many students in those classes. Try vince in Mich. Think of the last three great music acts from Detroit. He's done the apparel. I send him my rookies from Indy there to learn and save some money and get one on one time. He doesn't advertise about teaching, word of mouth. Give him an email- sales@we-be-ts.com and see what he could do for you.

That is not the case in MY class...

Here is why... I did not want this EXACT thing from happening with my class.

What you can expect at the Allentown class, three complete days of REAL CONTENT designed around the DACUM procedures for educational content.

My class is the ONLY class created from the ground up from a complete DACUM panel made of seven professionals in the field of screen printing - all with over 10 years in the industry.

You will only see a factory rep at my class ONE time, for the introduction only for less than one quarter of an hour - then it is right into the class, one and one half day is about screen making and prepress alone.

Who am I, well I guess that could be better answered by the articles I write every month that are published in the industry magazines, or the seminars I am paid to produce at industry shows, or even by the companies all over the United States, Europe, and other spots in the world that use my services to educate and improve their shops.

Three days because of content - NO selling - NOT IN MY CLASS.

Class size - that can be an issue that is why there is a limit of 12 for each class.

Three days because it takes that long to squeeze three months of material into a well made and produced educational program.
