T-shirt print - Norris Museum

We had a brilliant T-shirt printing day yesterday at the Norris Museum.

We printed about 110 T-shirts with children- each one different.  The weather was perfect and as you can see we worked outside in the lovely gardens.  The children drew things in the museum or in the garden and Cary and I helped them to print these onto there T-shirts.  Thanks to Gilly and the team of museum volunteers for making this such a successful day.

It looks like I was doing all the printing in this picture- but the children all participated in the printing process - even the very tiny ones.

And there's always that moment of magic when they see their designs transformed into colour!

Screen Printing Fabrics

I like doing this - printing the same basic design elements in different layouts.  And it's summer..... so it has to be sunflowers!

Cottenham summer school 2015

I think it's been 17 years since I first started teaching Screen printing at Cottenham Summer School and each year my students amaze me both with their creativity and their productivity!

So, here is some of the wonderful work by adult learners on the Sensational Screen Print course this year, 2015, at Cottenham Summer School.

Frustratingly I realise that I took far fewer photos this year so there's lots of textiles that I  don't have pictures of...........but here is some of what I do have:

Thorney Wall Hangings

Another community project with Thorney Museum.  Volunteers from the lunch club have been stitching these marvelous banners which went on display for the first time a few weeks ago.  There are more to come as annd when they get finished.
