Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold, new outfits with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a one-day screen-printing class at What's the Norm? (a $250 value). Classes meet on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. starting July 2.
The artistic shirt-smiths at What's the Norm? bestow students with shirt-designing know-how via hands-on screen-printing courses. Overseen by experienced instructors, each one-day class congregates from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and divvies up time between a darkroom and a classroom, enabling participants to ponder color theory and learn how to prep and coat screens while practicing night vision. After learning the ins and outs of preparing artwork and operating machinery, students can print two T-shirts from pre-selected artwork or one-color designs that they brought to class. What's the Norm? kicks off each session with complimentary coffee and pastries and, in the afternoon, keeps amateur printers from starving or eating the clothing of classmates by supplying lunch. To keep neckties and wedding gowns from being damaged, attendees are recommended to wear clothing they don't mind staining.
