I always go the craft expos and fairs in Sydney. I always tell myself I will do a talk, class or workshop. I never do.
But I read Amy's (Badskirt) blog post and decided to take her advice. Screen printing is something I've never done, and unlikely to try by myself, it's not like embroidery or knitting, where you don't need many specialized tools to start. I also liked how you could take home a completeted useful object (a tea towel).
Louise Snook was a fantastic teacher, very patient and inspirational. She made some suggestions, like adding the word "tea" to my design.
The most difficult part of the workshop was planning and creating my design. Most of the other people did abstract designs, but I don't think I'm very good at that. The actual screen painting was lots of fun, I'm so glad I joined in. I'll definitely take part in more classes and workshops from now on!
