Print Gocco is a Japanese color screenprinting system developed in 1977 by Noboru Hayama and uses a flash bulb to “burn” the carbon drawn design into the screen. You then ink up the screen and go for it! Such a simple straightforward way to create some gorgeous images either on paper or fabric.
There were some wonderful designs from everyone in the class and it was also great to see how some of the fabric printed images came out. Very inspiring.
It was also so lovely to meet Marisa in person after all this time and really brought home what a difference a year makes when you put your mind to do something. It was almost a year (1 week out) to the day that her “In The Fish Bowl” class began. An e-class about Life As An Artist – kick starting me into this very life I am now amazingly living :-)
