I’ve recently started an evening screen-printing course at Inverlochy Art School. We’ve had two classes so far – in the first, we learned how to get our image onto a screen using the photographic emulsion process, then in the second we learned how to print a two-colour image using our screens.
I wasn’t very prepared for the first class as I’d only realised it was running a few days before it started, so I ended up doing a quick kokako sketch at the school and using that for my first screen.
I printed this family of kokako using my screen.
I’m having so much fun learning this new process, and am brimming with ideas of different ways I can use it! I’ll be bringing some screen-printed items to the Craft Central market on October 3rd, so come and see me there if you’re in Wellington!
