Screen Printing at Drawn in Bristol

Hello again!

In the last few weeks I’ve made some nice new prints, all hand screen printed by me! So I thought I would give you a little peek into the Drawn in Bristol print studio to see how it all works.

First you need a pretty black and white image:

Expose your images onto a screen and print each colour separately:

(Lining them up and leaving to dry between each colour):

Sort the rejects (send them to friends and family):

And trim the rest to size:

And voila! a beautiful selection of feathered friends.

Thanks for reading and see you next time when I blog about my addiction for museum and gallery drawing.

You can find the featured prints in this entry in Upstairs at BS8 and Paper Scissors Stone Volume 3.

    These are lovely. I love printing mediums – they’re so colourful and I like it how they sometimes don’t quite get in ‘the lines’. Beautiful.

      Thanks Gareth, me too! They are so tangible and I love the happy accidents you get with print processes. It’s a lot of work, but it’s a labour of love 🙂
