Thermofax screen printing workshop



Last Saturday I went down to Bunbury to tutor a workshop for the Stirling Street Art Centre. We only had 6 participants but they produced lots of good prints and I think they enjoyed themselves.

We also did discharge printing, still using the thermofax screens but with decolourant instead of paint. Below: Julie decided to discharge her jeans!

Any kind of screen printing or stamping makes a great workshop. Painting fabric, in general, give so many interesting designs.

Looks great - I like the idea of discharging your jeans! I plan to hold a basic dyeing/discharging workshop in October to follow on from the Open studios event. Wish me luck!
