Private Lessons

Spudnik Press is temporarily reducing our offerings. Private Lesson availability is very limited. If you do not see availability for the process or time frame you are looking for, you are welcome to sign up to be notified as we are able to expand our availability.

Spudnik Press offer private lessons in every process that we offer including screenprinting, letterpress, intaglio, relief, lithography, book arts and more.

Held in 3-hour sessions, private lessons meet the student where they are at and can target very specific learning goals. The first session includes a studio orientation and general introduction to the process. Together, teacher and student will plan a project for the remaining lessons. By the end of a cycle of 3 to 6 lessons, students will become authorized to work independently at Spudnik Press.

Private lessons are can accommodate up to two additional students for an additional $5-$10/hour. Members of Spudnik receive 10% off all lessons.

Book a session below or email to schedule a lesson. We will work to match you with a Teaching Artist that best suits your requests. Please include:

  • What art form or process you would like to learn
  • General level of experience
  • Availability: days, evenings, weekends, etc.

Private Lessons: Gap Lessons

Gap Lessons are designed to offer efficient and focused one-on-one support for people embarking on new projects, who need help working through a particular printing issue, or who are transitioning from taking classes to using our Open Studio program.

Taught by our in-house staff, these one-hour lessons can help fill in any gaps that have held you back from getting the most out of your time at the studio. Lessons are often scheduled preceding an Open Studio session to allow students to work with staff for an hour before their full studio session.

Email to schedule a lesson. Lessons are typically scheduled at least one-two weeks in advance. Instead of enrolling through our website, an online invoice will be sent once a lesson is confirmed. Please include in the email:

  • The specific topic or skill you would like help with
  • Any particular staff you would like to be paired with
  • Availability: days, evenings, weekends, etc.

Please note that gap lessons are not designed to provide authorization, but instead boost your confidence within the studio. Based on the skill or topic you would like to focus on, we may recommend a longer lesson.

Private Lessons: Wedding Invitations

Spudnik Press also offers a Private Lesson Wedding Invitation Package  for those wanting to letterpress print wedding invitations. Students will learn the process of letterpress printing, independently print their own invites and will become authorized to use Spudnik’s equipment and facilities upon completion of their project. This package includes up to 12 hours of one-on-one private lessons as well as 2 complimentary e-mail consultations with the Teaching Artist.
