MA Practice : Screenprinting

Screenprint experiment

Last week I had an induction into the screenprinting facilities at MMU, and the result is shown above. As you can see, the screen was blocked in places and the ink didn’t quite get through but, as far as I’m concerned, these imperfections are kind of the point of printing by hand.

I found this William Morris quote in the course of my research and it really stuck with me. In the next few weeks I intend to try printing onto other papers and materials which do, and do not, support the statement.
