Screenprinting at London Printworks Trust – one step closer…

I attended a 5 day screen printing course last week at the London Printworks Trust in Brixton (an experience in itself, including Electric Avenue!) We were taught by Dawn Dupree who is a textile artist exhibiting in the UK and Internationally (http://www.dawndupree.com).

I learnt various techniques I’d never heard of including foils and flocking but my favourite was just straight forward screenprinting onto fabric or paper. I finished the week by printing one of my geometric designs in different bright colours on cotton fabric and made them into tea-towels on my sewing machine yesterday. Not brilliant but it’s a start and one step closer to making my own fabric. I just have to find a workshop I can use or set one up at home now!
