Screen Printing Experience Class Sandy, UT

by Ryonet
Sold out

Dave and Lisa and their team at Carousel Hat are not out to just sell to people, they want to help, to educate, and to provide an experience that nobody else will do. They want you to know that they will back up everything they do and keep you pointed in the right direction. Their philosophy has always been to share their knowledge with anyone interested in learning and they have opened their doors to their shop for anyone to come by to see what they are up to and is one of the reasons they selected Ryonet for their new automatic press since their culture fits well with Ryonet’s desire to share knowledge. Dave and Lisa have ingenious creative solutions to problems and a real gift to taking complicated subjects and explaining them in a way that everyone can understand. Dave and Lisa have both taught classes related to a multitude of subjects, from software to manufacturing throughout their careers and giving back is where their passion lives.
