From Past Attendees

Here's what they had to say about the Print Makers Workshop:
Jennifer helped me feel confident from the moment the class started. This was my very first screen printing experience and she had me creating my first project within the first hour of the class. I started as a total novice and left ready to start screen printing anything and everything!!
Margaret Poast

Print Makers was an amazing experience. Jennifer is so patient, kind and knowledgable to the entire process. She offered tips and tricks for the beginner to the advanced. If you are on the fence you should try it-you won't be disappointed!
Jeanne Wright

I was genuinely hesitant to try screen printing at home but this hands on class gave me the skills and confidence to make a shirt at home the very next day.
Jessica Trinh

Amazing class! Jennifer explains everything in such a precise and simple way that it's so easy to follow and understand, even if you've never done this before! I was skeptical that I would learn anything in just 3 hours, but not only did I learn…but we did THREE PROJECTS! That was surprising for me because classes I have taken in the past that's never been the case…one project at most! I loved this class and would take another one again in a heartbeat!!
