seeing (and making) patterns

092312 - Sunday afternoon was a crafternoon for us. We attended a screenprinting workshop by CraftMNL at The Collective in Malugay St, Makati.

We've been dying to attend their workshops ever since I started stalking... er, following them on Facebook and thank goodness we were finally able to free up our scheds. So we hauled our asses off to Makati and got our craft on.

Say hello to Andrei and Sheina from Hocus Manila. I seriously love these two! They sure know what they're talking about and we learned a lot from them.

Here's Andrei showing us the photo emulsion and how to apply it on the screen:

If only exposing film was as easy as this...

Watch the image slowly reveal itself on the screen (really, I was uh-mazed!!)

We didn't really use this since we signed up for the pattern making screenprinting magic extravaganza (!!!) so we used patterns like this:

We had to try this, it looks fun.

Aaaaand viola!

It was a very fun afternoon. The possibilities of screenprinting are endless! We can finally cross this off our bucket list.

In other news, here are some shots of the studio.
