This is my last workshop this year. As I mentioned before, this is my last year offering workshops which in some ways is sad but will free me to pursue my painting and some mixed media work.
I had 2 experienced participants and two newbies to silk screening. They were champs which was great because it could have gone the other way!!!!
a interfacing stencil on the silk screen
I love the directionality of the print on the left
First round with first stencil
Starting the second round after lunch
These are hard to see wet but there are fish and waves. Very effective. This was drying on hot asphalt before the final step.
She wanted to eliminate a lot of the white
More interesting marks
Again, white areas filled in after drying the stencil prints
Table covers. These two tables had 4' X 8' cotton covers. All of the work students and myself did left dye and wax from batik on the covers. At the end of the day when everyone went home, I took all of the left over thickened dye and applied it to the covers. I left them over night only because it started to rain and rained all night. Next day I hung them on the line to dry. Crumbed off as much wax as possible and ironed off "most" of the wax. Then into the washer and dryer and on to the ironing board.
Good night wet studio
