Screen printing progress.

I have been making pots and ceramic jewellery components this week but will reveal those when they are finished.

So I thought I would show you my screen printing practice pieces, I’m doing an online course with Dionne Swift.

I have learnt 5 different accessible approaches to screen printing and when I have time I will explore these techniques further, I want to combine printing and stitching, and also screen print on ceramics.

I like the way each technique has it’s own particular qualities.

I can’t say too much about the techniques but I can say these first 2 samples have lots of layering

This next printing technique didn’t quite do what I hoped but some of the other course participants have done some amazing stuff so I will have to give it another go.

This technique was quite random and interesting but sometimes you need to know when to stop……too many layers!

Screen printingI have enjoyed learning these different methods used to screen print, I intend to explore them further when I have time, but next time I must be more careful with the dye powders, I inadvertantly dyed my clothes, a sheet, and my foot 🙂

Now I have to get my pots finished before I can experiment with stitch and print, I could use some new cushion covers.

  1. Oooh nice like that one with the circles on it…. I did a bit of screen printing at college. I did an Art & Design foundation course so we did a bit of everything…. Good fun x
