Fiber Arts: All About Screen Printing

Screen printing is the epitome of DIY art — conjuring up images of homemade “band shirts” and posters.

Thought to have been invented in China during the Song Dynasty (960-1279), serigraphy, or screen printing, is a stencil method of printmaking that’s still being used commercially today!

Printed fabric in many colors is a staple of contemporary quilters and sewists, and local artist Dana Harris Seeger will be showing BARN students how to make their own screen prints in some upcoming classes.screen print of a windmill with multi-colored background

Dana began screen printing in her basement as a high school student, painting her own stencils and printing images of Bob Dylan and Elvis on T-shirts. Today, her more personal work in printmaking and encaustic painting can be seen hanging at Verksted Gallery in Poulsbo and speaks about her Baltic heritage, life as an identical twin, and as the mother of twins.
