I'm looking to take a screenprinting class in NYC.

Weekends any time or weekdays after 6:00. Manhattan is preferred, B/Q/Bx okay. Most of my Googling turns up screen printing companies, not classes/institutions. I've looked at places like BMCC and NYAA, with no results. Any suggestions?

Best answer: The 123 Community space in bed-stuy has screenprinting workshops and open studio time. Check the calendar and contact them with more questions. They might also have more info for classes elsewhere.

it's not like an intense class but it'd be a good place to get your feet wet. Don't be discouraged at all, they are really great people!

Searching for "screenprinting workshop new york" yields some results.

Here's one coming up on the 20th, hosted by Etsy.

Make Workshop also has classes, although they don't currently have any dates listed.

Those were the first two I found.

Best answer: If you are by any chance interested in other forms of printmaking, two of my friends have taken and enjoyed this class from Cooper Union's continuing education department.

Best answer: My roommate took a screenprinting class at NYU as a continuing education student and liked it. There's also Post Expose in Long Island City which I hear is really good.

Best answer: ABC No Rio is a great place. It's a community-run arts/activism center on the Lower East Side. Their screenprinting facilties are open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:30 - 9:00 pm.

They don't really do 'classes' but they have people on hand to help you get started and to provide guidance. Also, the supplies and facility use fees are very small.

I don't know if you want a beginning-to-end type of structured class, but even if you just use this place in general, it's a great resource. Screenprinting is a lot of fun- enjoy it!
