Gowanus Print Lab

The Gowanus Print Lab is a community screen printing studio established in October of 2010 in the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn. Their goal is to create a nurturing artist community by providing exhibition space for emerging artists, affordable access to tools and a workspace, and education through design and screenprinting labs.

In the screenprinting labs, the teachers demonstrate how to make single- and multi-color prints before helping students customize T-shirts, totes, and even shoes with personal designs. Sometime they have group exhibitions and additional art classes. In the nearby Mac computer lab, they help students master complex software like Photoshop and Illustrator.

Sometimes, the staff tailors their programs to youths with interactive summer workshops, private events, corporate team building, and interactive galleries that engage the neighborhood's budding art community. or caters to a more adult crowd with monotype sessions featuring live models and beer. For the truly dedicated artist, they offer memberships with unlimited facilities access and private studio and individual equipment rentals.
