For the screen printing activity we needyou to bring your:

  • apron, or old clothes that are ok to get ink on!
  • clothes aireres,
  • hairdryers,
  • iron, 
  • ironingboard,
  • rags,
  • old tea towel (for protecting your iron from the  ink),
  • newspaper,
  • drop sheets
  • hose with fitting to clean the screen at the end

 As soon as we find a suitable place to make our home, there might be some storage space for us, but until then, we have to bring in this equipment and take it all away again.

The community house is a multi-use room, and we leave it clear, clean and tidy for the next group!

Screen Printing

2017 05 21 Screen printing the logos

We have ink, and two screens.

The steps are:

  • Set up drop sheets, newspaper as protection agains the ink,
  • Cut up suitable material for the logos (calico),
  • Print the logo, using the squugee to distribute the ink evenly through the screen,
  • Carfully lift screen and move wet logo to the clothes airer,
  • Dry ink to touch dry with hair dryer,
  • Iron logo to set the ink,
  • Cut to size, and make up 10 packs
  • Wash the equipment clear of ink

If you can donate some plain calico to become logos, it will be an immense help.
