Señor Seagull Curiosities
Last week we held a stencil screen printing workshop to raise money for Sea Shepherd. The 12 participants each produced their own stencils and then printed their design onto one of our organic cotton t-shirt's. Stencil screen printing is the quickest and easiest way to screen print.
There are 4 main steps to stencil printing;
- Draw - produce a one colour drawing the size it is going to be printed.
- Cut - cut out the drawing on acetate using a scalpel.
- Print - position your stencil on the screen and once the t-shirt is in the press, make sure that the screen is aligned where you want the print to be then print.
- Cure - cure the print using the heat gun 20cm away from the t-shirt, once you have seen all of the vapour come out then the print is ready.
Thanks to everyone that participated, we raised $220 for Sea Shepherd.
