Simple screen-printing

Just before Christmas I introduced my students to screen-printing, showing them how to process and print from a silk screen. Once you have an image that you are happy with (it’s worth spending time on this) it’s surprising how quickly a print can be created.  This print was created in under two hours whilst teaching my class! The process is all water based using very low-tech equipment. Amazingly we processed and printed 24 screens creating wonderful Christmas cards and prints.
