Love What You Do

Last Tuesday I took a screen printing intensive class at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn. The class was taught by the wonderful and ever-cheerful, Amy Fierro. Amy is a master screenprinter, runs this etsy shop, brightbeige, and is a regular seller at the Brooklyn Flea. I've got my eye on that black t with the moon on it in her etsy shop.

But back to the class, I wanted to make sure I printed a piece that I really loved. So I took an initial quick doodle and expanded upon it to make this final piece.

After we had our artwork printed out on transparencies, Amy set up our artwork on our screens, ready to be exposed. 

Lights are turned on and ready to burn, baby, burn our screens.

After washing out our images, we are drying and ready to go!

And the end product! Ta-da!

Stacks of prints and some kids t-shirts printed as well.

All in all, I really had a great time and enjoyed being able to physically print something after being a tshirt designer at AE for over 3.5 years. I would really recommend taking this class if you want to learn or need a refresher. Thanks Amy for being a great teacher!

Stay tuned tomorrow for an awesome giveaway!
