Screen Printing

Layering Textiles with Colour, Texture & Imagery

The fifth title in C2C’s practical ‘how-to’ series, this important book shows how to explore the versatility of the silkscreen and use it in a free, creative and flexible way. 

Just one silk screen can take you anywhere you want to go and is a remarkably versatile tool in the hands of an enquiring mind.  Endless possibilities exist to generate specific imagery in the form of line, shape and texture, along with marvellously organic, fun and spontaneous alternatives.  This book demystifies the process and provides over 25 ways of getting a design on to the screen – 23 of them temporary – so that a single screen has the potential to print endless designs. 

 'Screen Printing’ is aboth user-friendly and inspirational. The 80 pages contain clear step-by-step instructions in Plain English, accompanied by over 180 gorgeous, instructional photographs. Recipes for different media such as thickened dyes and discharge paste are included along with guidance on fabric paints, acrylics and colour mixing.  Finally, the ‘Projects’ section will enable new users to understand the possibilities of a single design and kick start them on their journey into layering textiles.

The bonus DVD provides over 45 minutes of guidance on using the screen and building expert technique – a valuable accompaniment to the book as it’s just like being in a live workshop environment.
