A "UNIK" experience
Today I had one of the days since I moved up north! I have an artist friend who does a lot of screenprinting in Smithers and she was running one of her awesome how-to workshops. Here, we learned how to prep a screen, about different inks and materials, how to print your design, and we all got to make a t-shirt and print on anything else that we brought along with us. I made 5 cards, printed on veneer, and made 3 t-shirts! Her studio is absolutely fabulous (as is she) and the class was so much fun! I got to use my octopus that I posted the other day and I learned A LOT. I really didn't know that there was so much involved in screenprinting! Visit Sophie Joubarne's blog and also her website Unik Printshop. She also sells things on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/unikprintshop. She's an amazing artist who I think needs more recognition!!
