Do I have to let someone know I’m coming to Open Studio?
No. At this point in time, reservations can only be made by annual members for the etching or litho presses. Screenprinters need not make reservations. Some open studio sessions are busier than others, but we are very accommodating and make space for everyone to work on their project.
What is your refund policy?
For all classes, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a seat, unless specified otherwise. One-day workshops require full payment. For cancellations made at least one week prior to the first class, we can refund 50% of the full tuition, or give 100% studio credit to be used within the next 6 months. For cancellations made with less than one weeks notice, we can only give studio credit to be used within the next 6 months. No refund is available if students cancel within 48 hours of the class, workshop or lesson.
How much experience do I need to have?
We are okay with people feeling a little rusty, but for the most part you need to be independent. When ever working in a new studio, questions arise, there are different tools on hand than the last shop, and it’s a little disorienting in general. So questions are good. If you helped a friend print a few T-shirts once, you probably need to schedule a lesson. If you took a 16 week class in college, but forgot what you use to clean the roller, you’re probably okay. If you are somewhere in the middle, e-mail or call Angee, and we’ll go from there. Monitors are NOT teachers, but helpful kind volunteers.
Do you have screens I can use?
Yes. However, images left unprinted on screens for more than 2-weeks will be reclaimed at a $5/screen fee. Screens must be returned in the condition they were borrowed. Screens must be thoroughly reclaimed. If you want to use a screen for multiple projects, or leave an image on your screen for awhile, you can become a member and store up to 4 screens at the studio. Studios left in the studio unused for over one year may become the property of Spudnik Press.
