Side project- textiles:silk screen printing part 2

Last Friday and Saturday I attended another
workshop on silk screen printing given by the
brillant textile designer Liz Nilsson.

There were two main objectives for the workshop

Day 1
1. To make a silk screen.
This I did and here it is.

Here we are sanding our frames in Liz's beautiful
Sheena Vernon designed back garden
l-r : Cecile, Laura,Moi et Melanie .

The second objective in day 1 was to learn different ways
of preparing artwork for photographic exposure
which was really interesting

That was a really full day of learning and it
included another collectively 'made' sumptuous lunch.

Day 2,

The objective was to take a klee picture as
your inspiration /starting point and create
a piece of work.

I really hated what I did and can't bear to even show you .
It is horrible . There is no other
way to describe it .
I realised afterwards that I'm too impatient to
mix and build up colours, I want instant block
colour ,that's probably what I love about glass.

One of my fellow course attendees was Laura Freire , a very lovely and very talented spanish woman , and she is also a blogger!

Laura's work is really gorgeous ,It's so precise and perfect , she was the class champion , you can check out her blog on the course here and see her other beautiful work.
