Screen Printing Workshop


What a VIP workshop... so much fun, glorious weather, yummy new menu, amazing company and talented instructor! Thanks must go to Nick Young for his enthusiasm, skills and equipment which enabled the day to run smoothly. Everyone was delighted with the results they achieved.

Limiting the amount of photos I want to post was rather difficult but I hope I have summed up the day, what I couldn't capture was the kindness and generosity of all workshop participants in helping each other out.

I had to start with a finished picture, lovely Wilma's print (our first international visitor at the Treehouse, she is from New Zealand!!), held up by Bec in the amazing sunshine that we had on Friday.

Nick Young from Two Ruffians and Curio & Curio (alias "Tub Boy"), so talented, generous and helpful with everything, especially washing all the screens all day - a neccessary but messy job!

Many participants had a rough idea about what they wanted to print, sketching their ideas was the first step, here is Sonia's caravan.
