graphic design screen printing5

Graphic designers love a good stencil.

If you think of screen printing, you think Andy Warhols’ depiction of Marilyn Munroe, right?

Basically, screen printing is using a mesh based stencil to transfer ink onto another surface. Sounds simple.

Now to practise. I went to a  screen printing course on the weekend in St Peters, with Steve Wood. Arcade Screen Printing, they are totally down with the profession, and the art of it.

Listening to the theory introduction, my mind was racing with all the ideas that a creative has with a new medium to explore.

More commercial ideas for screen printing are fabric designs, wall paper, t shirts, teatowels, artworks and posters.

Here are some shots from my first attempt. The course didn’t disappoint, and I will be going back for more.
