Back to the Print Table.

It has been such a pleasure to be back at the print table. While I had been teaching for so many years, finding time for creating work had been at a premium.  I now find that with the establishment of the Sunshine Print Artspace  I can actually start screen printing again. Setting up a screen print studio is no mean feat. Firstly, you need lots of room especially if you are interested in printing lengths of fabric. Then you need all the rest of the equipment like exposure units, wash troughs, light boxes, ink mixing benches and if you have concerns about water and waste you need to install all your filtrations systems. Not necessarily suitable for a domestic studio.

It’s surprising how quickly I found myself returning to the rhythm of the squeegee pull.

Now for a collection of recycled cotton scarves and the ever useful tea towel.
