I always look forward to seeing what people will screen-print in my workshops and I think you will enjoy the following creations from last weekend's talented group.
These cute prints belong to Nikki Fletcher. The 2-colour tree was printed onto a linen skirt found in an Op Shop (Thrift Store).
The three friends all drove from the Gold Coast for the class. From L to R; Tam of IIIIME, Mia Faulks and Nikki Fletcher who all meet weekly as part of a crafting group. Take note of Nikki's glitzy apron, made from cast-off tent fabric.
Katrina Stirling was another talented lady from out of town. She screen-printed seed pods onto a linen tea-towel. The printing bled through to simultaneously create a textured print on the paper underneath. Don't you love these kind of arty accidents? Katrina is an artist so check out her blog.
Another seed pod from participant Nicki Laws, also from out of town. I'm so flattered that you all drove so far ladies! I'm so sorry Nicki, I could have sworn I had taken a photo of you. Never mind, I will be blogging about Nicki's amazing textile prints in a future post. This was screen-printed onto some of Nicki's leaf-dyed fabric. I believe that the print bled a little because the fabric may not have been completely natural or the dyes may have formed some kind of barrier. You cannot print on scotch guarded fabrics, for example.
If you are in Brisbane and want to join us for a day of screen-printing fun, you can book on-line here for March. My current schedule probably won't allow me time to teach a class in April or May but we will be demonstrating our fabric-printing at our next Open Studio Day. Save the date for Sunday, April 11th. More information will be posted closer to the date.
