Silk Screen Techniques by David Barista

 David instructed our members on how to make silk screen prints over two sessions. Due to the lack of a large silkscreen frame and space in which to work, he modified the teque to use 10-12" embroidery hoops.

The process was to create negative images in reverse on the bottom of the silk screens using either cut-outs or screen filler. He had all the inks and squeegees to complete the printing process. Members made many creative designs and patterns. Some printed multiple copies for note or Christmas cards and a few tried to print on T-shirts and Handbags. It was great fun and a good learning experience.
