Come create whimsical and creative whole-cloth compositions while learning screen printing techniques such as discharge, ghost printing, masking, foiling, and layering. Design principles such as unity, repetition, and focal point will be discussed as we play around with thermofax screen printing. As an added bonus, Lyric will teach you how to mount your finished work on a gallery wrapped canvas, a fabulous technique for a professional presentation of your art.
Let Lyric guide you through the basics of what, exactly, a thermofax screen is, and how it’s made. Then she helps you begin your own creative journey as she shows you how to find and design your own imagery so that you can have a custom screen made for you later if you fall in love with the technique. Learn all about the basic supplies you will need and then get printing! Lyric will explain the properties of textile paints, how to prepare, care for, and use your screens, and finally how to design and create your own beautiful whole-cloth composition.
