Beginner’s Guide to Screen Printing: 12 Beautiful Printing Projects with Templates
Screen printing is a print process involving the forcing of ink through a screen of fine material to create a picture or pattern. It has been around for many years, and has long been perceived as a specialist subject accessible only to professional printers and textile artists due to the high cost of the screens and inks.
Recently, however, screen printing has entered the mainstream and the equipment and tools have become more affordable and accessible.
In this Beginner’s Guide to Screen Printing, Erin Lacy shows you how to make your own screen using an embroidery hoop and silk fabric, and demonstrates how to create beautiful designs that are easy to achieve.
Discover how to print onto different surfaces such as wood, cork and fabric, and create twelve stunning, coastal and botanical-themed projects through bright and colourful step-by-step photography.
The book includes templates and inspiration on how to design your own screen printing motifs.

Erin Lacy traded in her urban roots for walking boots when she moved to open up a print studio in the creative Cornish seaside town of St. Ives, UK, where she currently lives. Erin trained at, and graduated from, the London College of Fashion, and went on to surround herself with the world of textiles through work and leisure. She set up a business to promote printing as a craft and went on to demonstrate print techniques at her studio as well as at shows and workshops.
Erin has produced her own range of ready-to-go hand-mixed printing paints – Pick Pretty Paints – a medium for all printing methods, to be used either at a table or on the go. She has worked alongside Kirstie Allsopp's team at Handmade Shows and Fairs across the UK and has demonstrated Christmas printing gift-wrap ideas on Kirstie's Handmade Christmas TV programme.
