A Journey to the Emerald Island…

Spending a few days of my Easter holidays travelling through Ireland, I simply have to say that I am overwhelmed by the cultural heritage and the natural beauty of this green island.

I want to find time for a longer trip, maybe renting a car and driving through the beautiful countryside and along the rough coastline.

Here are just some impressions…

Printing Workshop

Here are some pictures of yesterday’s printing workshop.

We printed some colourful spring motifs using linocut plates and used screenprinting to print on fabric.

Needless to say we had a lot fun…

 

Things I Like Today…

is this hidden snow-covered creek in a small village near my home town.

Easy Printing

Printing is just fun, whatever material you print on…

At the moment I enjoy printing on fabric. So I got these nice pillow cases, cut out easy stencils and printed some floral motifs with green, blue und white textile paint.

It’s a simple idea but looks really pretty on your sofa!

Textile Printing

While organising my printing and painting material I found some textile paint yesterday.

Why not print some nice patterns on plain white textiles?

All you need is some paint and a good cutter to cut out your stencil. Instead of paper I used  overhead transparencies because you can print with them several times.

You can print on different fabric. Of course cotton works best but I also printed on some silk pillow cases…
