Spring Classes – Easy Screen Printing

Standard

Image

We had so much fun screen printing in our Art Quilt group that I’m very excited to bring this class to both MQX and MQS this spring. I thought screen printing needed expensive materials and was difficult to do but I found out that you can make your own screens with common materials and it was very easy. In the class we’ll be making two kinds of screens – one disposable and one reusable. We’ll experiment with different mediums to create the design – soy wax, glue, paste and freezer paper; and different mediums to print with – fabric paint, screenprinting ink, and shaving cream mixed with ink and discuss using dyes as the medium. You’ll go home with a screen and several printed fat quarters. Don’t settle for just the fabric you can find….make your own!
