I have attended my first two screenprinting classes. The first lesson was filled only with screenprinting theory, showing how the machines worked and all that. At the end, my head was spinning of all the information. I was afraid I would forget everything before the next class.
We were asked to bring a black and white image for the next class. I didn’t have much time to draw anything, so I just stamped a pattern with my orange slice stamp. During the lessons everybody seemed to have forgotten some things, but together we managed to make our own screens with just a little help.
I had planned to buy some tea towels or anything to print on, but I didn’t have time for that, so I use some scrap pieces. I really like the result though, so kept the screen and paint for the next lesson. I hope I can find some time to buy tea towels or cushion sleeves this time.
