This was an excellent and accessible class that really familiarizes the viewer with a very hands-on and subject-specific process. I really appreciated that Hilary included explanations of what specific steps accomplished and why they are important, like applying ink to the full length of the squeegee to keep it lubricated while moving across the screen, or flooding the screen to prevent ink from drying within the image. Thanks for the great video!
