The Studio @ Gallery North will be sharing silk screening with guests. A printmaking technique, silk screening is an exciting way to create an image that can be reproduced many times on many different materials. It begins with a permanent image on silk which is then covered with ink that is squished through the silk, leaving behind your image. You can print on paper, fabric, plastic, glass & more!
