Screen Printing Workshop with Lotta
It took me awhile to get this post up. I had grand plans to create some gifts from the items I made during this workshop, but I never got around to it. Then COVID-19 hit and I’m just trying to adjust. Looking over these photos makes me so thankful for the opportunity to travel, meet new people, try and try new things. Being at home for almost two months, I really do miss them. Hopefully we will get back to normal soon. :)
Last Fall I was on the east coast on a work trip and Lotta happened to have a screen printing workshop in Brooklyn the weekend after my trip. I took advantage of my location and took a quick trip to participate in this awesome workshop.
My mindset going into this workshop was one of more LEARNING and PRACTICING. Trying not to think too much and get in my head. Creating in that space was much more freeing and allowed me to be more creative. Not only was the workshop awesome, I was able to reconnect with a friend from the Aland Retreat earlier this year.
We were able to take materials home with us, including the screen and squeegee. I have gathered up some other supplies to make my own tabletop press (like the one we used in the workshop) so I can keep practicing!
Stay tuned for seeing what I do with the prints from this workshop! But in the meantime, check out more of her workshops on Instagram via #lottasworkshops.
