This week I’ve been screen printing some limited edition prints to sell on the 16th June @ Hyde Park Picture House Leeds.
I ended up printing the image in a very pale washed out blue and comparing it to the original image found it wasn’t quite dark enough, instead I tried using a dark blue/black and found that it was too dark! perhaps a two colour print would have worked best using both black and blue and changing the contrast.
I’m not a screen printing pro unlike many of the textile students @ Leeds College of Art where I was printing, they definitely know what they’re doing! it’s a really exciting process but it’s definitely about getting the technique down.
Hope to see some faces at the picture house! I’m selling the prints for £6 on the door.

These are a few pieces from the Mates presents Scouts exhibition from a few weeks ago.

I got back from a trip to Iceland a few weeks ago, as well as the amazing scenery there was an amazing community of independent designers and makers there, it’s great to see even through the economic crash that there are people still making and producing amazing handmade products.
