Jeremy Haas has over 8 years experience working in textile print shops. He started screen printing as a class project to teach himself something he's always wanted to learn. This blossomed into a drive to learn as much as possible about the process, which turned into a career in the field. From sloppy basement single color prints to 12 color auto simulated process prints, he’s covered a lot of ground, and wants to share his knowledge, and love, for printmaking with the community!
