I've just been cutting out a stencil for a screenprinting workshop I'm doing for my youngest daughter's art class at school. I know it's not the easiest way but I really like the old fashioned-ness of a hand-cut stencil. I think it also helps the kids to see that they can do this themselves at home. Anyway, far from perfect but I think they'll like it and, come Thursday morning, we'll have some fun with it. I'm going to get them to print the design on some calico library bags I found at Eco Shopper (great resource in Australia, if anyone's looking).
