Deconstructed Screen Printing for Fabric and Paper (DVD)
Noted Fiber Artist Kerr Grabowski leads us through the exciting process of creating texture and imagery using her versatile Deconstructed Screen Printing methods. Kerr's process capitalizes on the resist properties of dried thickened dye on a screen, crating painterly, spontaneous and organic prints. Deconstructed Screen Printing (DSP) is the crossroads where artistic intent and the "happy accident" merge.
For beginners and experts alike, this video covers the basics and demonstrates techniques that while easy to use, will yield sophisticated results that are sure to trigger the experienced artist's muse. A nationally known fiber artist, Kerr developed Deconstructed Screen Printing in the early 1990s and has been experimenting with and teaching it ever since. Her teaching style is clear, inspirational and non-dogmatic.
Included are detailed instructions on building and stretching screens, assembling a print board, choosing squeegees, mixing print paste and fiber-reactive MX dyes. Kerr demonstrates two basic screen printing stencil techniques (wax and paper), and then goes on to exciting variations of her Deconstructed Screen Printing technique. In addition to Kerr's instruction, this video is full of inspiring samples of students' work and a Gallery of artists using DSP in their own work. Deconstructed Screen Printing will help artists wanting to "get out of the box" transform their work on fabric, paper and anything that can be dyed.

- Excellent value
- I watched these DVDs prior to taking a workshop with Kerr. The DVDs are well-organized, full of content, and easy to follow. Kerr goes into great detail in all aspects of the DSP process, and shares a lot of her considerable knowledge. If you are at all interested in playing with spontaneous screenprinting, I can't recommend these DVDs enough. I still refer back to them after several years of working with the process.
