Screen printing in Ballard

Have you ever gone screen printing?  
I wasn't even exactly sure what screen printing was until yesterday, but now I am addicted. We were lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and walked into a free screen printing session in an art studio located right across from our apartment. We walked in and were immediately thrown into the process, it was fantastic!

I'm still not sure how you get an image imprinted onto the screen (that's the next project) but screen printing is fairly simple...you place your paper under the screen, set the screen down, run a line of paint along the top edge and then squeegee it down to the bottom, and repeat once. Voila!

Our friend's finished project!
