The Making Room pt.2

 

IMG_7587After having fun trying block printing a fortnight ago as part of The Making Room I was really looking forward to my screen printing taster session.

This time our tutors were the fab team from Bespoke Atelier who seem to live for patterns.

We met in the exhibition space at the back of All That is Solid and the team chatted to us about the basics of screen printing and showed us some of the screens they’d created based on Alexander “Greek” Thomson’s architectural details.

There was a lot of head scratching thinking about what we’d like to print onto our tote bags and most of us used a mix of Bespoke Atelier’s designs with masks we’d created to alter the designs. All a bit messy and a whole lot of fun.

I’m really chuffed with my bag which I printed on both sides. The back echos the print on the front but by using a mask I’ve created something that looks more like a chemical equation. I’ll also add some embroidery to embellish it.

Bespoke Atelier are taking part in the Southside Art Trail on 24th May which looks like an amazing event and also run workshops.
