Elizabeth and Sue taught their screen printing class last weekend at the VCQ meeting. We had 15 enthusiastic quilters in our group who all made great progress learning how to screen print using a thermofax screen. Some had done printing before, and for others, it was their first foray into the world of surface design.
They practiced with different types of paint while they got the hang of how to print and by afternoon were ready to branch out to more creative printing endeavors.
Martha and Sherry are busily printing; with prior experience, they were prepared with their supplies and ready to go.
There were lots of screens to choose from!
Wendy printed butterflies on this lovely hand dye/metallic fabric, then added some discharge with a dragonfly screen. Click on the picture for a larger view.
