artfest silk screening workshop

the 2nd workshop i taught at artfest was silk screening.
once again, i was blessed with a very talented group of artisans.
these were my class samples.
and following, are the wonderful creations everyone came up with:

love the bold imagery of this piece by jolie!

each person came up with their own art then made screens of their images and then proceeded to silk screen onto fabric.

regina combined things her family enjoys for her piece.
kinda like a family crest?
she posted some more pictures of her finished creation here.

kate did her friends new baby’s name.
(we all decided she should be named the godmother after all the work that went into this!)

tracie did the awesome recycle sign which goes along with her biz- radical recycks
for the first time, i had the privilege of a sweet teenager (sophia) and a darling man (ben) taking my workshop.
both of them- super fun and cute!

the thing i love about silk screening is that you can use the art again and again.
and by changing up the fabric color and ink color it completely changes up the art.
not to mention, all the cool things you can print on. ๐Ÿ™‚

looking at all these pics is making me yearn to do some silk screening myself!
ohhhh, i wish there was more time in a day!

**again, i somehow missed taking pictures of some of you and your beautiful pieces.
if you notice your missing and have a few pictures you could send me i’d love to add them to this post.**
