Hey guys and gals!!
I just wanted to give all you Vancouverites a heads up, I have just taken a couple classes at Blim, which is located at #197 East 17th @ Main and I had such an awesome experience learning to silk screen. It's a really laid back artsy atmosphere and I thoroughly recommend it for any one looking to get into silk screening. Hope you all enjoy and get back to me if you have questions.

PS they are just closed for a little spring cleaning but will be back and running May 1st

Wow... that's super close to my house and I had no idea it was there! I would totally be into learning silk screening... in fact I have two screen and some ink my dad bought me when I mentioned my interest a couple of years ago. Unfortunately I realized I just didn't have the space in my home at the time and packed it all away. I think it's time I pulled it all out and dusted it off!

About how much was the program, and how long did it run? Also, what method of stencil making are they teaching?

Hey Nashira
sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you I've been a little swamped lately. Well it's only like a 3 hour class and it teaches you how to build the screen and I think it was like $30 or $40 I can't remember and then if you want to learn more about actually applying the emulsion and everything you just take another class about the same length and I think it's around the same price but it is definately worth looking into. If you are still interested I would suggest checking out there site. Hope you the enjoy the classes as much as I did!!
