Isabel Urbina gathered twelve (her included) designers she met at ProDiseño, Ccs — her school in Venezuela — to design a promotional calendar which she was determined to silkscreen. Something she had never done before.

I didn’t know anything about silkscreening, but for a long time I had been interested in learning more about it. So I bought the bookPrint Liberation and started to learn. Soon I got all of the materials I needed: screens, squeeges, inks, clamps etc. I live in Brooklyn in a tiny apartment, a place I temporarily transformed into a printing studio with prints everywhere. Since I didn’t have much space or a pressure washer — which I realized would make the reclaiming process a lot easier — I ended up renting some studio hours at Manhattan Graphics Center. I did all the printing and bookbinding. It was an awesome experience and I learned so much about silkscreening including inks, reclaiming the screens, products that work and don’t, registrating different layers of an image… you name it.

No doubt trial and error are a key element to any learning experience. From designing each page to actually printing and binding the final piece.
