Squeegees, and other tools used in screen printing, will be addressed in Sunday Print Shop’s two-part screen printing workshop at SCRAP Denton.

Nonprofit offers class series on printing method

T-shirts aren’t going anywhere. They’re cool, wicking and — what do the advertising moguls say? — “breathable.”

T-shirts are also quite possibly the No. 1 vehicle for screen printing — a popular technique of mass-producing art and graphics with affordable materials.

SCRAP Denton, the local shop and nonprofit creative reuse organization, will host a screen printing workshop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at SCRAP, 215 W. Oak St. in downtown Denton.

Students might not get to print a T-shirt, but once local talent from Denton’s Sunday Print Shop guides them through the process, they might be closer to making one.

The two-part workshop costs $20. Tuesday is the first class. The second class will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. June 24. Students will learn how to design and burn a screen and then go step by step through the printing process.

To sign up, visit the shop or call 940-808-1611, or visit
