Polychromatic Screen Printing

Last night I taught week three of a five week Screen Printing workshop out of the textile studio at Harbourfront. As I am nearing the end of my three year artist residency, I wanted to give my students a rare treat and share with them one of my favorite processes, Polychromatic screen printing.
Polychromatic screen printing combines both silk-screening and painting techniques to produce watercolour-like images on paper and cloth. By painting directly onto open mesh or exposed silk screens, polychromatic allows you to print multiple colours using a one-step process... and the results are shockingly gorgeous!
Here are some images of prints taken from the workshop:
