Screen Printing at Oil and Glass with Mhairi Mcdowall

On Sunday I was lucky to get a last minute spot on screen printing with Mhairi Mcdowall. The class was held at Oil and Glass in Aberdeen, a fantastic visual art and fused glass gallery with workshop space.  Oil and Glass is ran by the lovely Shelagh @oilandglass who was very helpful when I enquired about the workshop and is the artist of some lovely glass pieces and pictures.

We were taught by Mhairi Mcdowall @mhairi_mcdowall, who specialises in textile and design and creator of Paper houses. Her exhibition at Make Aberdeen featured on my blog post last week https://hellofromrosebudannie.wordpress.com/2014/08/23/♡adventures-make/ .

Mhairi was great taking us through the screen printing process and I really enjoyed my afternoon as printing was something on my radar to do for a while!

We Screen printed onto tote bags. I try and take totes when food shopping and thought would love a tote for fruit and veg and went for a beetroot veg design.
