I recently hand-stamped a friend's baby shower invitations & realized how much I missed getting my hands in there - getting them dirty - making the impression with my own arm - no mechanical errors or technical issues other than ink & surface & the beautiful imperfections that come from doing anything by hand. I missed all of it & knew I needed to do more of it - but with a little structure. (Structure really helps kick me in the rear.) So when I saw that textile designer, Lena Corwin had an open spot in her Screen Printing class, I jumped on it. It was perfect timing. I'm so excited to go to my first class tonight! I can't wait to get back to using my hands - and in a whole new way for me. Stay tuned for updates.
