Screen printing

I have never tried screen printing before so I booked myself on a class with Joathan Korejko - to learn how. I have an ear infection which is affecting my balance but was determined to get there, so my prints aren't as adventurous as I would have liked but I did learn the techniques along with tips and tricks.

The first stencil I cut was a very simple bird design, which I printed onto previously hand dyed cotton.

The second day I used a design I am using for the finyovislan classes, cut two stencils and then played with those.
I cropped one of the pieces and can see possibilites, a little foiling and a little stitch and I may have something worthwhile.
I like screen printing and can't understand why I have never tried it before, guess what will be at the top of my christmas pressie list this year?
