a saturday afternoon printing

Last Saturday I attended a screen printing workshop at the Textile Museum... yes, again!!
It was a short course on how to use screen filler as an option to making the screen with photo emulsion. 
I had not used the screen filler before, so I enjoyed learning a new technique.

everyone getting ready to print



results? 
Well, I did not have time to print with my screen because the screen filler did not dry on time. I brought it home and plan to print one of these days... promise to show!
