Thermofax Screen Printing Class

What a busy weekend!  Along with my partner in crime Elizabeth, I taught a screen printing class on Saturday at Artistic Artifacts.  I went to an evening wedding Saturday night, and arrived home Sunday to spend the day helping my daughter and her friends tie dye 26 shirts for their kickball team!  More on that project to come; first, the printing class.  We had a great group of 9 ladies coming to printing from a variety of perspectives.  It's interesting to hear the various perspectives on their work that people bring to class.  We had some who are into modern and art quilts, some who do mixed media, and even 1 who refurbishes furniture and wants to print her own fabric to make it unique.  We even had the "Richmond 4" who traveled to Alexandria from Richmond for our class and am happy to report that they felt it was well worth the trip.  They had free use of our screens for the duration of the class and got hands on practice learning the printing technique - and soon found out how fun and additive it can be.  Its fun to share our love of printing with folks who are motivated to learn.

  1. Wish I'd known Richmond ladies were headed to your class - I would have stowed away with them! Cathy
