This week we're exploring the use of vinyl as a screen-printing mask/stencil.
Files are easy to set up using some very simple digital tools- all you need to bring is a couple of smart images ready to go on a USB (.jpg- or emailed prior to marie) AND some sheet material.
This time we'll play with some alternative materials such as natural timbers.
-ply off cuts
-mahogany, cedar walnut etc planks (typically a couple mm thick available from a hobby or craft store such as Gordon Harris or Maid on Marion)
-MDF (manageable A3 or A4 from spotlight or Gordon Harris)
examples above (a natural timber with that lovely grain!) would make fantastic table or bench top serving plates or decorative wall hangings..or simply a wildly cool base material for other projects in your 'maker' studio such as furniture or jewelery.
As a class explore this awesome material and some savy digital processes that make screen-printing a breeze!!
Please remember to bring a basic hardboard sheet- something clean and flat you may already have lying about the shed or a bit of pine purchased from Bunnings or similar. And have that image ready on a USB or emailed prior to marie
