Screenprinting for textiles - Week 2


Week 2 and Steffan started us off with some drawing exercises using vegetables and fruits. What was interesting was that he told us to think in sections by placing coloured squares behind the fruits. I started off using this pomegranate above as inspiration; which had been 'printed' onto the square behind it. I was also fascinated by the table itself which had wonderful marks on it that had been left behind from printmaking!

The course sounds so interesting, I definitely would like to attend it too!

Here is a link to the Baktus-scarf pattern. It's a real easy one.

Thank you for the link to the scarf - it probably doesn't take too long to knit!

hi dear Jacqui, thank you for your presence, for the encouraging and soothing words you leave me...

all this looks so interesting! not too long ago, i was also doing something with a pomegranate and discover how beautiful its dried skin is. i'll be curious to see more of your printing and experiments!
