Printing by Hand: A Modern Guide to Printing with Handmade Stamps, Stencils, and Silk Screens

#ad
Stewart, Tabori and Chang #ad - There’s even a silk-screened dog bed. Block print Book - Flexibound. Her inimitable collection of projects ranges from stamped stationery and simple-to-sew pouches, to stenciled tote bags and furniture, to screen-printed bed linens and upholstery fabric. It’s the natural inconsistencies―the accidental differences between one finished piece and another―that make hand-printed fabrics, papers, furniture, and works of art so interesting.

Corwin has given us that guide. Using step-by-step instructions and up-close photos, stenciling, and screen printing, Corwin teaches crafters everything they need to know to master stamping, from making their own printing devices to trouble-shooting when plans go awry. Or maybe not quite the same. The author has created original artwork for each project full-size patterns are included in an envelope at the back of the book, so that every crafter can achieve the same beautiful results.

Printing by Hand: A Modern Guide to Printing with Handmade Stamps, Stencils, and Silk Screens #ad - . The quirks are what show the maker’s intimate involvement in the process, and it’s that unique quality that first attracted textile designer and illustrator Lena Corwin to hand-printing. Even though decorative prints are more in vogue than ever, there was until now no up-to-date hand-printing guide―no single source explaining the tools and materials that are used today, or reflecting a contemporary aesthetic.

Remember: it’s the subtle differences that make hand-printing so special and alluring.

It does all this through just four very simple mending techniques: exterior patches, darning, interior patches, slow stitches, and weaving.

In essays that accompany each how-to chapter, and confidence, self-reliance, Katrina Rodabaugh explores mending as a metaphor for appreciating our own naturally flawed selves, and she examines the ways in which mending teaches us new skills, all gained from making things with our own hands. In addition, the book addresses the way mending leads to a more mindful relationship to fashion and to overall well-being.
