Mimosa Make & Take "Monoprint Scarf"

This Sunday we had a fun class, Monoprinting a Scarf! This class was so much fun because you got to play spontaneously to create a beautiful accessory! Margaret Hluch showed us the monoprint technique. She also discussed how to get the thickened dyes that are needed to create a monoprint.
We got to pick and mix our colors and create our patterns.

We practiced on a sample cloth. Even these samples turned out beautifully.
Everyone had success with this process! Check out the great results!

Deconstructed Silkscreen Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Wednesday we had our Deconstructed Silkscreen Wine & Cheese Craft Party! It was a lot of fun to learn this easy method of silkscreening! Jill Stern, the artist who creates the fun painted shoes and clothing was a great teacher. She showed us many of the secrets she uses when creating her clothing!
It was fun to pick out and create the design! We got to take home the silkscreen which we can use over and over again to add a fun touch to tee shirts, tote bags and anything else paintable! I can't wait to make more!
