Here’s what some students are saying about Pulling Screen Prints:
I have learned so many techniques, I do not feel so dependent upon buying the images of others for my designs. When I see a stencil or screen printed design, I think “Oh, I could do that one.” The course totally exceeded my expectations and I can’t thank you enough!!! Nancy Warren – US – Pulling Screen Prints
What a wonderful class, opening up the whole world of home screen printing and so many possibilities.
Excellent presentation of materials and so easy to follow ! Thanks.
Lisa Hermanson – US – Pulling Screen Prints
This was my first online class and learned a lot, would recommend to friends.
Specifically, appreciate the brilliant and very workable registration system that I can easily set up on my work table and use with success and flexibility
2. Organization to print easily, when I want to , so that I don’t waste time or procrastinate because I have to spend time thinking about “how” to get started
3. Being able to make many little screens with the hoops is fantastic because I don’t feel so precious and daunted about the materials. I’m more open to experimenting with images. If it doesn’t work it’s easy to try again. This knowledge is very liberating.
The videos were terrific. Clear short succinct and doable.
I just loved being able to work and experiment at home.
a wonderful experience. – Chris Cooper – Australia – Pulling Screen Prints
This was my first online class, and I learned many skills that I will continue to use in my art practice. It’s the total package of possibilities, but I think my favorite skill has been the drawing fluid/screen filler technique. I enjoy the control possible. I would recommend it to my friends. Susanne Loutas – Canada – Pulling Screen Prints
I was most pleased to learn, how to use inks and medium, how to work with stencils, how to use drawing fluid, how to use hoops to stretch screens. I learned a lot and would recommend this class to friends. Précille Boisvert – US – Pulling Screen Prints
