Earlier this year I undertook a challenge to print 5 large silk scarves for a travelling exhibition, Print and Repeat, organised by Dionne Swift. This was a challenge for students who have taken her screen printing workshops either online or in person. She has also produced a book outlining the print techniques she teaches in the workshop, along with photos, tips and experiences from the 16 challenge participants. I received my books recently and can recommend it if you’re interested in printing your own fabrics with Procion dyes. The book, Print and Repeat can be ordered from: www.dionneswift.co.uk
