Screen Printing

14 Dec 2015

I've always loved drawing and painting, but printmaking has always been a bit of a mystery to me. I've dabbled with lino cut and monoprint, but had always wanted to try my hand at screenprinting. I had spent many years designing graphics to be screen printed on things - t-shirts, jute bags, teatowels etc however when it came to the actual process I was a bit mystified. I was fortunate enough recently to spend some time at a local print studio in Penryn (John Howard Print Studios - check them out!) getting to grips with this great medium.

 

Here is what I produced...

 

 

 

 

There is something really appealing about cutting your own screens, mixing your own inks, and the predictable unpredictability of the whole process. It's something I intend to do a lot more of in the future.
