I have just spent another Saturday up at The Art Barn in Orua Bay attending a screen printing course. I have a screen sitting in a corner of the studio that hasn't been used for years, but having been on this latest Tastes Creative course, I would like to think that at some stage soon I will drag it out again and have a bit of a play.
We had the choice of printing either a T.shirt or a tea towel, so I thought I'd go with a cliche' and print "Home Is Where The Heart Is" on a tea towel. It came out a bit wonky but it was another great day surrounded by good people and good food, that had me refreshing my memory on the technique of screen printing. Thanks to the girls at Tastes once again for organizing another full and inspiring day.
