Screenprinting can be addictive.....

My brother in law teaches in a senior school with an amazing Art Department and on an opportune social engagement, Debbie met one of the Art lecturers. Well you know how one conversation can lead to another and.... we found ourselves on a tour of the department and an invitation to use the printmaking facilities. We spent two fantastic sessions screenprinting, using screens already made within the department. These are some of the results, fell in love with the "Agapanthus" screen and used it quite a lot.





The tape used on my sketch book cover was printed with this piece, hence the "blank" line running through!


....and finally just had to make up a fabric basket using some of my new treasures.

You lucky, lucky thing!!!! I loved screen printing at college and have never found a suitable affordable way of doing it at home, you're right it is addictive.
Love the results you've achieved here.
