I took a screen printing class, held last week at my favorite handmade heaven, Gather Here, and taught by the brilliant Sarah Coyne of Eggagogo. Not only did I learn how to burn my own screens using a photo emulsion process, I got to print my first designs on fabric, a t-shirt, a tote bag, etc., and take it all home with me.
Since then, I’ve bought all the necessary supplies to continue this maker adventure–screens, paint, reptile light to burn screens, photo emulsion, you name it.
You can see more of my screen printing work here (the set of photos is still light in its loafers, but give me some time to get going).
Tonight, I’m set to burn a new screen, but the project has to stay a secret, for now, because its a surprise for friends on our impending two week camping trip, starting next week. Stay tuned.
