Today we are joined by the amazing Jessica of Seedpod Craft. Jessica shares some simple tips for silk screening with children, and the joys of creating simple designs. We hope you and your wee ones enjoy this wonderful process.

Lots of kids and lots of ink…

Recently I taught a silkscreen workshop for the kids in our homeschool group. I got all of our supplies from EZ Screen Print and each kid got to make a screen 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. We spent the first 20 minutes making their drawings with black Sharpie on 20 lb. copy paper then used the sun to expose their screens.

In art school silkscreen was a long process requiring a lot of special equipment– but with the EZ Silk Screen it was a breeze. Colorado boasts more than 300 sunny days a year, and it did not fail us. I was so excited that we didn’t even need to use transparency for their images. The Sharpie on paper exposed perfectly.

We developed and washed everything with plain old water.

And just used tape to hold the screens in place rather than stretching screens on frames.

The actual printing was pretty messy, but the results were worth it. I love sharing these kind of projects with kids– helping them do things that seem so complex and showing them that they are artists! They were all so proud of their finished products.

I ended up doing it over 2 days. The first group had 8 kids, with my older 3 added to that. 11 kids was a bit overwhelming, I have to admit. The next day I had 4 extra kids and it was perfect. It made me wish I taught an art class more than once a year.

I was wondering if you could be specific about supplies? I live on St. John, in the Virgin Islands, and our daughter’s birthday is approaching next week. Hoping to do some crafts with the kids and this looks ideal! However, supplies are quite limited, though I may be able to scavange some on St. Thomas if need be. Thanks so much, Erin
