Product Details


Screen printing might bring t-shirts immediately to mind, but the focus here is on working with nonstretchy printing surfaces, such as paper, wood, cork, and woven (not knit) fabric. Twelve projects illustrate practical tips and instructions for using a variety of methods to create printed wall art, stationery, home décor, and more. Readers are provided tutorials for creating silk screens using wood or metal frames that can be sized according to the specific needs of a particular project. An alternative method using embroidery hoops is also included, and though it is more akin to stenciling using a sponge dabber instead of a blade or squeegee like true screen printing, it affords a useful introduction to the concept. Color photographs make the step-by-step instructions for each project easy to follow, and while a selection of supplies is required for any of the projects, it is clear that accessibility without a significant up-front investment in tools has been considered. This guide will provide crafters with what they need to learn and get comfortable with the technique.
