Screen Printing With Jane Foster

Last week I treated myself to an incredibly indulgent day....a full day workshop with the amazing Jane Foster, she of the screen printing talent!

I was so excited, I never really do anything like this, too busy teaching people myself and trying to earn money to be a pupil, but boy was it fun!

I went armed with pages of ideas and inspiration but I knew from the off what I really wanted to print.

Well it seemed only apporpriate, especially as I own several of them!

I added a little more detail, ate more cake and got set to printing.

Today was the best day.....ever ever ever! Screenprinting workshop with Jane Foster. Will share my makes when I've come back down to earth!n

And I just kept going, it was addictive!

I went along with my very good friend Nicola and I think we both had the best time we've had in ages.

Jane was so lovely! Really inspiring and full of ideas and great tips and I really felt that when I left at the end of the day I was almost an expert ;-)

The workshop space was amazing, bright and roomy with bucket loads of inspiration and Janes makes covering every surface.  Honestly, I asked if I could move in! She has done a little write up on our workshop over on her blog.



Of course I couldn't leave without a copy of Jane's book, its brilliant!


Overall a very happy Emily went home that day! I do have a few pieces from the day for sale, if you are interested it is for a VERY good cause ;-)

I am have been working my little socks off for months, saving like a demon for a new sewing machine so I have better capacity on the quilting frame, I'm even not going to FQR in an effort to save (boohooo). I am really close to having enough.

So it seems only appropriate that I should sell sewing machine printed goodies to fund a new sewing machine!

I have two white tote bags and one pink bag for £6 each plus postage. I also have one panel left (the one pictured in the second photo below, £6 (which includes postage). If you would like anything just send me an email to emilylevey@yahoo.co.uk or comment below.

I'm now the proud owner of one of your fabulous panels (thanks to Susan!) - I hope you're going to do more printing soon!
