Manitou Art Center

TWIL is hosting Liz Kettle during the 3rd Friday Art Walk in Manitou at MAC. Liz will be doing demos on how to use Thermofax screens to create unique fabric and paper! Thermofax screens are similar to a traditional silk screen but easier to manage and store. You can use these Thermofax screens to print unique paper, fabric, clothing, home décor and more. You can screen print with acrylic paint, textile paint, screen print paint, discharge pastes, gel mediums and glue. Stop by and discover screen printing and all that TWIL has to offer.
