Default How did you learn to print?

I assume I'm not the only one here who is self taught. Until now, my ability to just figure it out was enough, but as I've started to create more complicated designs and to expect higher quality prints I've hit a wall. My t-shirts aren't coming out right. I've done some research on the forum but there are too many potential causes, from equipment issues to improper setup, or poor printing technique. Rather then pester you all with specific questions I think it's time for me to invest some serious time into improving my knowledge base.

Can anyone recommend a good system (Online class, book, physical class) for mastering water-based screen printing? What worked for you?

I'd ideally like something online or a book just so that it can be self-paced -- that said if there is an excellent screen printing class local to me in Portland, Oregon I'd love to know about it.
