*New Bloesem Class: Screen Printing with Lisette Scheers
You have all heard of screen printing. It's the beautiful process and printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image * thank you wikipedia*. Basically it's the patterned pieces we see everywhere, from art prints to t-shirts to pillow cases.
We have been long time admirers of the process and would love to learn the skill ourselves so we invited Lisette Scheers, wonderfully talented lady and business woman behind Nala designs. (many of you would have seen her stationery products in the Bloesem shop). She also has her own design and advertising company, L.Inc! How does she do it?
We can't wait to get our hands on the paints and get our favorite prints on all kinds of products! Students are urged to bring in cloth items they would like to print their patterns on.
Though in this class, we will be printing on cloth, Lisette will be teaching us the basics of screen printing which can be applied to many other materials including paper, so not to worry!
Due to the overwhelming responses from the first 2 Bloesem classes, we have opened 4 screen printing classes. 2 on Saturday 17 may at 9.30am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 6pm, and 2 on Sunday 18 may at 9,30 am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 6pm. Each student only attends one class, choosing whichever time slot they prefer. For all other details about the class, do check out Bloesem.co! We hope to see you there!
Inside Lisette's studio, you can see all the beautiful patterned products she has designed. As well as the tote bag (pictured below), very chic and practical, even comes with a matching pouch!
Class catering: For every Bloesem class, quality catering has become a priority, because we know good food is definitely part of a complete and good class experience. So look forward to more yummies in the screen printing class too!
