The Back Yard Guide To Screen Printing

I have decided to share my 30 years experience with screen printing on Fabric and have made a new page to teach people the basics.
This page is a tester for a book I am planning and I am happy to share my knowledge here if people could do me the courtesy of letting me know if I have not made something clear enough so that I can attempt to clarify it

I have began by showing people how to make a screen the first thing you will need along the way I hope to expose some of the myths connected with this craft and show you it really can be done simply and inexpensively at home without all that fancy expensive equipment.

After all 95% of my printing has been done at home or in a very isolated community I have not always been in a well equipped studio. I will be covering hand cut stencil photographic stencils and alternative techniques to add an image to a screen.

Please feel free to let me know how you are getting on, As I add a new section I will make the previous post a pdf file with a link to download so that you may keep it and so it does not overcrowd the blog. I will add Squeeges, Inks and stencils tomorrow so you can dive right in. Please find the link to the page in the list on the right hand side of the screen.
Happy Printing
Cheers Julie


  1. Hi, I occasionally pop over from Crafty Mamas. I am fascinated with screen printing and have some ideas of trying it myself (just simple stuff), so imagine how excited I was to read that you are writing a How-To guide and possibly even a book! I think that is a fabulous idea! Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I am reading, and it looks good to me so far.

  2. Thank you Chris Instalment 2 "Inks,Stencils and Print surfaces" Should be up by Tuesday evening I plan to do an instalment at least once a week More often if I can squeeze in the time.
