Hosted by POST + Shayla Johnson, from Scarlet Crane Creations
Saturday October 19th from 10am to 12:30pm
Learn all about the basics of screen printing by using pre-cut stencils to create textile repeat patterns and print your own fringed scarf.
In this 2.5 hour hands-on workshop, Shayla will teach you about multi-color placement designing and the special techniques needed for screen printing repeat patterns on fabric. Learn how to arrange different motifs, mix colorful inks, and print multiple colors with this fun entry-level textile workshop. Bring along your own one-color designs or choose from our selection of artwork to get started. You will leave with a lovely scarf customized to your own style. Be as elegant or whimsical as you like!
Each participant will leave with a one-of-a-kind handprinted 20"W x 70"L 100% cotton fringed scarf.
Aprons will be provided, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Screen printing ink will stain your clothing!
