Focus on Fiber Florida Style
5 Day Workshop
April 4-8, 2019
Improvisational Screen Printing
The silk screen is a versatile tool capable of creating a wide range of images and marks. We’ll explore using the screen “improvisationally”, meaning using impermanent surfaces to the mesh which are used to make multiple prints, after which the screen is reclaimed for later use. Surfaces include flour paste, wax, water-soluble crayon, thickened dye, freezer paper and plastic, and spray paint. Participants will generate a range of samples suitable for art clothing, quilts and mixed media composing. Supply list provided at the time of enrollment. We’ll also talk design and color as they relate to effective printing and composition.
