Screenprinting Class – Part One

Something I’ve really been wanting to do is screenprinting. Luckily, we have a local print shop that offers classes. I signed up for a two part intro class at Green Pea Press. It was great fun and I thought I’d share my result.

I used a photograph I’d taken of Chloe and converted it into a black and white image in Photoshop. The image is screenprinted onto a canvas material and my plan is to add some paint and embroidery to it and stretch it like a regular canvas.

The second part of the class is next Saturday and since there are only three of us in the class we’re going to get to go through the whole process again with another image. I think I may do some t-shirts or tote bags next time with one of my little sketched creatures.
