Been a big job, class is a little to large fourteen yr 7 and a few yr 8's. Was going to do with another staff member but this change so decided to go ahead. DESIGN IN NATURE-using bugs. I created the stensils from students primary drawings. while screen printing with a few set the rest loose with jutta and silk.......
14 screens well almost -had to double a few up
Jutta waitng for colour
storing left over bits for other projects
first tea towel (one jutta bug)
Planning to do leaves , circles or strips on screens for colour....a little choise.
This has given me a challange, just today I came in from work ready to bin it....and took one last shot now feeling happy, break through! done what I wanted to achieve just white to fill in.
This has been a rather large experiment, wanted to work with chalk paint, did not want to buy board so thought I would upcycle a old canvas. This piece has to be left as wieght of chalk paint causing problems... when canvas is flate frame pushes into canvas surface. Ready to work on wood- formula in place will leave Kudu now and do more birds. PS BEEN LOOKING FOR TEA CHESTS OR RECLAIMED PLYBOARD ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOME.
Been very busy this morning trying to do styled photos of stuff for easter/ spring but lots to do as only a few nearly worked. As I am posting I think the wall and unit are too dark...so need to try again also need more light. Have a contact to email and in doing photos have mislaid the card!!!!
At last after lots of pushing and trying finaly some one has appreciated my take on screen printing. Applied last year and did not get the big job but now am being offered the opportunity to write 'how to' for a major online education resource. There is a little pay but for me its just the sharing...getting out there, the article remains mine. I am pleased a chink of light...
