Screen Print Experience Class - Bay Area (San Leandro)
Meet your instructor!- Brian Richards
Brian Richards started screen printing just out of high school; printing shirts for college clubs and organizations with a Ryonet starter kit out of his two-car garage. He developed a love for the process, committed himself to learning the graphic design aspects of the business and spent 7 years in the industry before launching his own business. After three years in operation, Brian sold his company to an existing group of young entrepreneurs. Full circle, he is now teaching to artists and entrepreneurs who are interested in learning and developing the craft of screen printing. Together they are committed to helping others learn and be successful.
Ryonet is proud to partner with Brand Marinade to offer our SPE class in the bay area.
Brand Marinade opened its doors in 2009 after owner Jeremy Castro decided to challenge himself with helping others cultivate ideas and translate them into products that end up on people's backs. Jeremy had years of screen printing experience and brand development under his belt before the idea of Brand Marinade became a reality.
Jeremy has assembled an amazing team of talented people making "Shirt Happen" on a daily basis. The experiment has become a real business, with real customers, repeat clients, and a collection of amazing brand partners.
