An absolutely Fab screen printing workshop!

As a complete novice, I was a student of Marie-Therese Wisnowski this weekend.  

Marie-Therese tutored this 2-day workshop on behalf of ATASDA NSW.     It was a time of full-on learning.  All about preparing the silk screen for long-time use, then information about the paints, and of course a few of the many techniques that can be taught.   The weekend went so so quickly.    

 My favourite method of screen printing is when an  improvisation approach is used.  I just loved the images that came from use of cold wax;  also masking tape to create shapes and mood. 

Here are a few samples of work completed during the weekend.    I am hooked on this technique and am eager to get to work, produce more samples, and take on more learning.   The group of ladies who attended – 10 of us in all, really enjoyed the experience.  Our enthusiasm rocked the boat!!!   Best of all, was the approach of our teacher.  Marie-Therese was very willing to share her knowledge and skill – she patiently addressed all our questions, and we were inspired by her approach.  What a wonderful teacher I had.
