You might wonder what I'm doing in the pictures above, and if you had asked me on the spot I would had told you 'I don't know!'
I was again at Liz Nilsson's studio for another wonderful 2-day screenprinting workshop and the stencil I have prepared for my very ambitious project had let me down (I'll talk about this in another post). So I was experimenting with a piece of Japanese paper I had bought at Daintree paper shop in Dublin. I put it on my cotton fabric and printed with an open screen over it, mixing drops of yellow and green dye directly on the screen. It's a pity I didn't keep the dyed paper to see how it looks when dry (I threw it away, oh stupid me) but here is how the printed fabric looks. Not bad, isn't it?
