trying out silkscreen.

I always wanted to learn how to silkscreen. So, I finally did a five-week workshop at the Textile Studio in 401 Richmond. It was every Saturday; I loved it so much that I will take another one in July!

The pictures above show what I did in the class:

 -Leaf table runner, I made the leaf pattern by cutting out black paper, and created the dots with a hole puncher.

Sun print blue table runner, it was easy and lot of fun, Sharon, the teacher provided us with a special fabric that is already exposed.

 -Jersey scarf, I am really happy with the result, it was really last minute because I wanted to print on plain canvas totes. I went everywhere in china town and couldn’t find any.  So the night before the workshop my friend Pamela showed up with a jersey scarf and it happened that I had lots of jersey fabric for a dress that I never made. So tada! I made a scarf myself.

-Dots and triangle cushion, I learned how to sew a cushion cover at the workroom.

    Muy bonitos!

    El camino en azul índigo, con hojas, está precioso!

    Me encantaría uno así con caracoles, estrellas de mar y conchas… Para un casa de mar. Poneme en la lista de espera. Con tu firma para darle más valor.

      Gracias papa! El camino azul es bien facil de hacer, solo hay que comprar una tela especial y tener bastante sol! Empeza a recolectar estrellitas de mar, conchas, corales lo que querras que tenga, cuando vengan me lo das y yo con gusto te lo hago!
