yay for screen printing!

Screenprint3

I recently finished up a six-week, 8-hour-a-day screen printing class. It was so nice to get my hands dirty like those days in art school. It was also really nice to see my work in another medium besides the standard printing techniques I often use…it brings a lovely slightly imperfect and irregular quality to the work. Here are snippets of some pieces. I can’t show it quite all yet since some of these pieces will be used for my wedding!

  1. I can’t remember how I came across your blog, but it’s my absolute favorite! I look forward to reading it each morning and I’m always amazed at your eye for finding the most beautiful and inspiring things. Please publish every little detail of your wedding and reception…I know it’s going to be one fabulous event!

  2. wow – 6 weeks * 8 hours a day – that’s intensive! your work looks gorgeous, and i can’t wait to see it in its entirety.

  3. what a lovely picture and the class is such a great idea – can you share where a class like this is hosted? somewhere near philly, i imagine?

  4. Thanks everyone!
    Yvonne ~ Any larger art school in your area should have screen printing, even some smaller paper & print workshops & galleries, too…
    I suggest doing a search for “screen print class” and then your city. If you’re in Philly, I can give you info..but I’m assuming you’re probably not…Good luck!
    A.M. ~ it was actually once a week for six week, but each class was eight hours. could you imagine if it was every day for six weeks for 8 hours…i’d be a master printer by now!
    Paula~ yes, i will be sure to post more images from the actual wedding after it’s all over 😉

  5. Wow, Joy! That is so cool. You must have blown your teacher away with your creativity…. it’s a little unfair to the other students…;)
    I can’t wait to see the rest of your work!

  6. Hi! From what I can see that’s going to be such a pretty invitation. I look forward to seeing more pictures of your wedding preparations and the big day in your blog. Best wishes!

  7. beautiful! my husband and i hand silk screened all of our wedding invitations, etc as well. it was such fun. only i wish i took a class. we had no idea what we were doing- trial and error! i was the art, he was hte muscle. i assume you made the screens yourself?
