New Class - Beyond Basic Screen Printing

PG Fiber2Art will be teaching a new class at Artistic Artifacts in February, called Beyond Basic Screen Printing.  This will be a project based class focused on completing a piece of screen printed wall art.  Actually, it will include 2 projects, the first being a ready-made tote bag that we will print on.  We will start off with a quick review of printing techniques and materials (paint, discharge products, thickened dye) and some warm-up on fabric, then move on to the projects.  The wall art will involve taking a print (about 6x9), layering it with batting and doing some simple free motion quilting, and satin stitch the edges.  Then we will cover a 9x12 art canvas with a complementary fabric.  Finally, the print will be stitched to the fabric-covered canvas with a hand running stitch.  Read more about it, the supplies needed, and how to register. Come join us on February 14!
