Do It Yourself Techniques, Design Ideas, and Tips for Graphic Prints

Images produced by the process of screen-printing surround us everywhere we go, from the garments we wear to the pillows we put on our couches; from the bags we carry our belongings in to the mugs from which we drink coffee. Screen printing has a long history - it's the way Andy Warhol had his celebrity portraits produced.

It can be done on a large scale, but it is also very easy to do with simple and affordable materials at home. With the increasing interest in personalization and in making a statement with your own customized clothes and artwork, screen printing is being rediscovered by the younger DIY audience. It is a technique with a long history - but suddenly lots of crafters are trying their hand at it at home.

The aim of this book is to simplify the process of screen-printing. Presented in a step-by-step format to show that it can be used in a variety of environments, whether you plan to print on a table in a kitchen (that's how Laura Ashley started her design empire), a longer table in a garage, or a full studio in a basement or loft. It will also include chapters on adapting screen-printing to pecial areas of artistic interest and suggestions for applying the technique to produce something beautiful and functional.
