Description

Making use of a fun and accessible screen-printing method, Susie shows how to design a screen with water-soluble pigments, and then how to print the image using a polymer medium. Complementary fabrics are designed using stencils, water-soluble crayons, and textile paints. And next, using simple fuse-and-stitch layering and piecing, Susie demonstrates how to construct a colorful, improvisational piece of fiber art. Further design elements are considered and added, including painted details and another layer of screen printing. Finally, Susie shares strategies for turning the piece into a three-dimensional piece of artwork, by wrapping and attaching it to a wooden frame (such as a house shape). Hand stitching and embellishments can be added to personalize the piece.

Great video Review by Jeanne Dominguez

I really enjoyed this video! The artist is friendly and relaxed, and demonstrates her technique clearly. She creates a good balance of instruction and encouragement, skill and creativity. I''m going to do this project (or one like it - creatively tweaking it!) with my daughter and her friends (middle school age). I think they will love it. It''s a wonderful introduction to screen printing, and opens the way for experimenting and playing with the technique and materials.
