"Yeah, you come in for three hours, use stuff we have in the store...what are you buying? Water-soluble pastel? We don't have anybody doing that..."
"Well, but I was using them on a silkscreen..." I began.
"Great! Nobody's doing that at all! I'm up to my eyeballs in watercolorists, but nobody's silkscreening! Here, let me introduce you to our demo coordinator..."

"This is Ursula. She's a great illustrator, does children's books, jetsets all over the country, I thought she could do a demo! She's doing silkscreening..."
"But I've only just..."

Meanwhile, I will be spending my spare moments between commissions practicing silkscreening...
