I love screenprinting: like any physical creative process it allows to learn not only about the printing itself but also about composition, matching colors, production techniques, and material qualities. There are quite a few silkscreen studios in New York, but I’ve been a frequent visitor to one — Bushwick Print Lab — and hardly ever changed my mind. I stopped by at their DIY printing party to grab a beer and brush up on my screens.
