In this workshop we will learn how to silkscreen print our own SOTAHOE souvenir T-Shirt. After group introductions we will discuss the process of silkscreen printing, the various pieces of equipment, and some quick tips for silkscreen printing your own souvenir t-shirt. Guests will choose between 5 different SOTAHOE pre-burned silk screen designs. Guests will be provided with a quality 6oz 100% cotton T shirt in a size and color of their choice. We will discuss placement and printing options before moving onto the silkscreen station. Guests will set their silk screen with their desired design into the T-Shirt press. Guests will place their blank T-shirt onto the platen with their desired positioning and orientation. Guest will choose their color of ink for design printing and learn how to flood the ink in the silkscreen and squeegee the design onto their T-Shirt. From there we will move the T-Shirt to the Flash Dryer for instant curing. Afterwards guests will have the choice to either wear their new SOTAHOE souvenir shirt or package the T-shirt in a clear plastic poly wrap for transporting later. Print one design or print them all. These shirts make great souvenirs for friends and family back home.
Graphic designer with a passion for silkscreen shirt printing. I first started silkscreen printing in Highschool as an elective course. After relocating to South Lake Tahoe in 2017, I was inspired to develop a brand of clothing that would compliment the recreational lifestyle and beautiful landscape that Lake Tahoe has to offer. SOTAHOE apparel is not just a clothing line; it became a lifestyle. SOTAHOE represents a commitment to developing wilderness education and advancing outdoor recreation in Lake Tahoe. SOTAHOE apparel is dedicated to preserving nature and everything Lake Tahoe has to offer for future generations of Tahoe living. SOTAHOE presents creative original designs. So the next time you find yourself rock climbing, hiking, biking, or just enjoying nature; Wear your souvenir shirt and say to everyone....That's SOOO...TAHOE!
