i spent the entire weekend with my heart racing, on the cusp of having a heart attack, firstly from the nerves of meeting new people, doing new things, and potentially fucking up these new things in front of these new people. and once that silliness had passed, the rest of the course was just a complete thrill. when you're getting it right, and you're whipping out these prints so quick, it is so rewarding, genuinely exciting..
it's not just a creative process either, it's as much about problem solving as it is about creativity; which is perfect for me because i am renowned amongst my pals for being organised (they all say i have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; i don't at all, i'm just fairly organised).
i do think this would make a perfect hobby for someone with OCD as you work in a sort of pattern, and every element must be perfectly orchestrated in order for the process to be successful..
i would definitely urge everyone to do a course at INK SPOT, it's given me a new lease of life and i plan on going back.. if i could live there i would. they do many different courses, not just screen-printing, and the environment is as fun as it is informative.
check out the website, and go! xo
