Screen printing DVD...

While in the US I spent a day at Burning Oak Studio's in Raleigh filming for a DVD about screen printing with System 3 Acrylics. The finished DVD should be on sale in the US very soon. It covers printing on paper, fabric and ceramic transfer. The DVD will be of great help to education and home printmakers with close up filming of screen printing on paper, T shirts and ceramic transfer information. I'll post more information on where to purchase the DVD and the item code etc as soon as I can.

The DVD is called: 'System 3 Screen Printing with David Fortune'... more info soon.

Giggleswick 2011 / Screen Printing for the Enamelling Process

This years summer school was fabulous... all attendees were producing brilliant screen printed decals in the first couple of days. Some enjoyed the mark-making others the computer generated imagery. Elizabeth Turrell had three enamelling kilns in use and it got extremely busy towards the last couple of days. So by the end of the week, as my grandfather used to say, we were 'tired but happy!'

Visit to CPS Centro Portgues de Serigrfia...

Off to Lisbon on the 18th July to spend some time at CPS, a screen printing studio in central Lisbon for Daler-Rowney. It's my first time in Lisbon so any advise on small, affordable restaurants would be gratefully received...

Back on the 21st July but off the next day to Giggleswick for my summer school, 'Screen Printing for the Enamelling Process'. I'm really excited this year as Elizabeth Turrell is working with me. Elizabeth specialises in all aspects of vitreous enamelling. If anybody is interested we could take one or two more for this years course.

US visit / Water-based Screen-printing with 'System 3'...

Got back from my US visit on the 24th April... had a fabulous time visiting Montclair University, The Pratt Institute, Parsons and the Chicago Printmaking Collaborative.
Everone I met were so helpfull and all were very keen on 'System 3 Acrylics'. I had a few frightening moments on aircraft as I'm not too keen on flying, tornados in North Carolina and an aborted landing in New York.

The printmaking frateraty and all of the universities and studios I visited were vibrant and had a real creative buzz... can't wait to run some workshops maybe next year!

Just need to catch up on sleep...
