Building a miniature ship inside a bottle is impressive, but not as impressive as forging a giant glass shell around yourself and waiting for your family to come home and find you. Do something crafty with this Groupon.

Held Fridays and Saturdays at 2 p.m., Grow Your Own Media’s group screenprinting classes are suitable for artists of all experience levels. Through this Groupon, the teachers will supply each of their charges with a blank tote bag, which can then be customized with the student’s image of choice. Custom images should be prepared and e-mailed to the instructor ahead of time as described in step four here. Everyone should also bring a pen and paper, additional printing material such as patches or posters if they desire, and old or worn-out cotton T-shirts to act as test shirts and rags.
Grow Your Own Media
In a studio charmingly cluttered with bright paint, printing stations, and busy artists, clients design and order screen-printed T-shirts, posters, patches, and bags, or learn to make their own. More experienced screen-printers might rent the studio and materials by the hour, providing an easy way to promote a band, personalize a present, or craft a witty retort to an “I’m With Stupid” shirt. The printers also organize artistic events offsite, showing off their skills to families, businesses, and social circles.
