I screen printed

My weekend included an afternoon of screen printing with The Needle Shop's Rachel Epperson and friends. Check out my lightning bolt t-shirt, one of Krissy Callahan's designs. Shazam! Krissy is the kind, fun, and very patient screen printing teacher at the shop who helped us create our masterpieces. I highly recommend taking the screen printing class over there; you can make loads of things in just a few hours. Do up totes and scarves and stacks of t-shirts... Presents for everyone you know! Including yourself.

Awesomeness! I've been wanting to try screenprinting in forever -- maybe I can find a class here!

Awesome stuff! I think I will try silk screening at some point too. There are way too many cool things you can do with it. Thanks for the inspiration.

I stopped in at The Needle Shop when I was in town for Renegade. What an amazing shop!

I took that class at the Needle Shop a couple months ago! Somehow, I was the only student who brought more than one thing to screen print...so I screen printed 2 shirts, 3 canvas bags, and 4 hand towels, while everyone else just did a shirt....

I have a yudu machine which makes screen printing super easy. The machine is kind of large but it's pretty cool. You just have to avoid their products because they are overpriced. I use speedball emulsion and ink instead.

Awesome job - it looks so fantastic!

Thanks. I've wondered about that class. I've been wanting to take the 10 week class at Lillstreet but it never seems to work with my schedule.

You need YUDU! They are so much fun!!!

Jess said...

Yeah, I saw one in action once and thought it looked cool.... but I only have so much space for storing gizmos in my apartment. Better yet, I need a friend to get one, and then I'll just borrow it twice a year. This sounds like a better plan. :)
