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.
