Studio Series: Mini screenprints

Screenprint patterned tape © Karen Thiessen, 2015
Recently I had the pleasure of taking a full-day (six glorious hours!) screen print class. The day before the class, I wrote out a work plan for the day: colours of ink to mix, screens to expose, and patterns to print. This worked like a charm and I was able to print far more than I expected. A few prints resolved nicely; many will be over-printed when class resumes in autumn.

One role of the artist is to pay close attention. I'm glad that I was looking carefully when I was sorting my prints because I noticed that the tape that I used to adhere small pieces to bristol were miniature artworks.
