The Art of Serigraphy

April 6, 2010 at 2:27 pm Leave a comment

So yesterday I got an awesome B-Day present: a screen printer! While watching the DVD on how to use it I got to thinking about the art form (and the thousands of projects I want to do with it)…

Based on the Japanese art of Katazome and more commonly referred to as screen printing, Serigraphy has come a long way since the days of ancient Japan. In the 1900s it was patented in England and its first commercial use came in 1914 by John Pilsworth in the United States.
Screen printing reached new heights in popularity during the First World War because of its ability to print multi-layered images on items such as flags and patriotic banners several times.

With any luck, in the next few weeks you’ll see a few of my screen print designs up for sale in the shop…
