    Screen printing with Clarissa Hulse

    by  • 23/03/2012 • Living • 0 Comments

    Last week I attended a special evening of silk screen printing hosted by Clarissa Hulse, held at her London studio.

    Clarissa was on hand to show us how it’s done, making it look easy but I can tell you from having a go myself it’s a skilled art form. First I selected my colours to work with, deciding on a grey and hot pink combination to print my chosen leaf motif to make a beautiful silk cushion. Not being an expert, the design is slightly blurred, but I think that just gives it more character!

    It was such an enjoyable evening, brilliantly insightful – giving me fresh new eyes when looking at Clarissa’s designs, because I know just how much work has gone into each gorgeous handmade piece.
