Here’s another great example of the kind of “deep technique” craft book I’m really digging lately. Jen Swearington is a talented textile artist, and she’s written a super useful and engaging volume on screen printing, Printing on Fabric: Techniques with Screens, Stencils, Inks, and Dyes.
Jen gets into detail on many approaches to screen printing in this book – both low-tech ones with simple materials and more-advanced concepts. It’s the kind of book you can really grow your skills with, and the kind of book that inspires you in a lot of different directions.
In this video, Jen shares some of her process and we get peeks inside the book. The projects here are just gorgeous – way beyond the simple T-shirt. Take one look at the folding screen project and then try to tell me you don’t want to get into screen printing!
