I met Thea (of Thea & Sami) at the Stitches and Craft Show earlier this year. I got to see a demo on screen printing and once I knew she was doing workshops at her studio I was keen to sign up! I was determined to have designs sorted and be 100% prepared...oh well...I did manage to remember to bring my ideas book at least so I had a few ideas to work from.
The train and birdcage had been jotted down during the week but the 'science' girl is an idea from a tattoo I saw on the web somewhere...I love how they all turned out!
Thea was awesome, apart from instructing us all in the art of screen printing, she gave us information on what inks to avoid buying, what to look for in second hand screens, and contacts of good places for supplies (which is very generous of her). She also was wonderful in her encouragement and in problem solving any design issues we came up against. She's taking a break from workshops for a little while - but look out for when she has them again!
