Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke.
Fascinated by this printing technique I signed up for a screen printing course. During this course I produced a small print of on of my architectural sketches from several years ago, a large print of an edited photo and a print I designed which I screen printed on fabric to create tote bags.
