Last week we had the pleasure to welcome Die Siebdrucker / Wildsmile Studios - a group of visual artists from Germany - in Kampala, who organized a screen printing workshop with the children at St. Peter's Primary School in Nsambya, Kampala with the support of the German Embassy.
Screen printing is an old, but still common and celebrated printing technique that can be done on paper or textiles, in which a mesh cloth is stretched over a heavy wooden frame and the design, painted on the screen by tusche or affixed by stencil, is printed by having a squeegee force color through the pores of the material in areas not blocked out by a glue sizing.

Students and art teacher were very enthusiastic and the teacher is planning to introduce screen printing as a permanent part of the art classes at the school.
