This past winter my school began to offer Community Education workshops as a way to collaborate with the community and give craft students like me the experience and ability to teach and share my knowledge with others. So far I have taught two, “Screenprinting with Nature” (go figure!) and “Nature Inspired Brooches”….the summers course offerings have been based around the theme of home and garden, which of course is right up my alley. Below are some photos of the screenprinting workshop, we had such a blast! and the outcome was amazing! The workshops will continue through the fall, so I hope to teach some more soon!
Above are some of the students planning their designs. We were very lucky to be able to use the Working Class Studio screenprinting facilities.
The objective of the class was to use natural objects such as leaves and flowers as the stencil to be screenprinted.
The fabric was then stretched around a canvas to make a lovely fabric wall piece.
I really loved the color scheme of this one! I’ll post photos from the Brooch workshop soon!
