As I mentioned in this post I was hoping to find other way/s of printing random imagery. Also, often, whether dyeing or printing, one of the kind pieces is what I naturally get. Some of them are very pretty and I might like to repeat them in small series or adjust them a little and then print.
I had wanted to learn screen-printing for a long time and now the time seemed just right. So I signed up for a course at Highland Print Studio.
Once on the course, I was soon drawn to various tools and materials for mark making and decided to go in this direction rather than working with my samples printed with natural paints. If I take a class I try to stay open and what I make consider just as an experiment. I remind myself I am there to learn and explore; it’s just a beginning not a final piece in the given technique…
During the short course I managed to print two different prints. This is the first one based on feathers.
In the above print I used two separations; the first was a distressed image for a background and the second the feathers.
And here just the second separation on the front of calico bags. I will show you the other print in the next post.
