Teaching Screen printing at Megalo

I love screen printing so much that I also teach screen printing on fabric at Megalo Print Studio and Gallery in Canberra.

I have just finished teaching a 6 week Thursday evening class.  

In the class we covered:
  • creating designs using paper stencils and photo emulsion (light sensitive); 
  • learn registration marks to create multi-colour prints;  
  • experimenting printing onto different background fabrics; 
  • and in our last lessons we also explored how to put your design into repeat.
Below are some images of the beautiful designs created in the class.

  1. Great pics, Kate! It is high time I renewed my membership and got printing again. I miss it so much!

    1. Printing is very addictive and the results are always amazing... you should definitely get printing again x
