A new Teen Screen Printing Workshop will be held on Sunday, Feb. 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Heritage Park Stables Art Studio at 24915 Farmington Road.
In this first-time offering from the City of Farmington Hills Cultural Arts Division, 13 to 18 year olds will learn the basics of screen printing with artist Karry Brook of Goods Detroit.
Teens will take part in a hands-on tutorial then will be able to screen print their own items. All inks and pre-printed screens with a choice of images and designs are provided. Participants should bring four to six white or light-colored fabric items, which may include shirts, hoodies, bags, pillow cases, scarves, and more.

In 2009, artist Karry Brook was named a Crain’s 20 Under 20 to watch for her side business, Wee Revolution, a children’s screen printed clothing line that she created while working at a full-time graphic design job. In 2010, Karry Brook opened her downtown shop, Goods Detroit, featuring witty screen printed shirts, handcrafted clothing, and other fun collectibles by state and nationwide crafters. Goods Detroit no longer has a storefront, but continues to be a leading small business screen printer in metro Detroit with large orders for corporate clients as well as small custom jobs for individuals.
