Screen Printing at Craft’d

Screen Printing at Craft’d

Last Friday I went to a Screen Printing Workshop at Craft’d. It’s a very cute little space in walking distance to our apartment and they offer lots of cool classes like sewing, making your own soap or cosmetics, calligraphy, designing bags …

The Screen Printing class was taught by Sarah from Pinyin Press. She showed us the different steps of screen printing: cutting out the stencil with a knife, sticking it onto the screen and finally printing onto paper and tote bags with different colors.

It was really fun to see the final results, there we so many cool designs. Also, I got to take home a few prints and a tote bag. To do screen printing at home you just need some sticky paper, a screen, acrylic paint and the thing to pull the paint over the screen. Next time I’m felling artsy (and once the feeling comes back to my index finger), I know what to do 🙂

The class was organized by GGI (Girl Gone International), an amazing global women community with a big chapter in Shanghai. They have different groups here like Foodies, Book Club, Health & Fitness or Fashion & Beauty. This event was hosted by the Arts & Culture Group. Through GGI I’ve already gone to a Cheese Fondue Dinner, an event called “Shoes & Champagne” where we drank and shopped, a Pilates class and I also joined the book club, where we read a book every month and meet up to talk about it.
