Silkscreen Workshops????

Just wondered if there would be anymore silkscreen workshops ??
because a few of us didn't know about the one last week.

I would really like to experiment with this, especially for the backgrounds and backdrops of my
childrens book work at the moment. Hopefully =) thanks.

Kate McMorrine Silk Screen Workshop

Kate's workshop truly brought life to our print room, so much so that she will hopefully be coming back once a week to help out!
Here are some pictures from last weeks workshop:

Quite a large printing space

Preparing material to be exposed. Earlier on we coated our screens with UV light sensitve emulsion
Kate is adept in using cutouts, drawing, washes and other textures in her work
Our antiquated exposure unit!

Our drying cabinet can hold only five large screens horizontal
We have three medium sized screen beds, and one large one
