The Art of Screen Printing and Embroidery

Screen printing and embroidery, also known as silk screening, has been around for centuries. Its origins can be traced back to ancient China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD). The technique spread to Japan and other Asian countries before making its way to Europe in the late 18th century. It gained significant popularity in the 1960s, particularly in the United States, thanks to artists like Andy Warhol who used screen printing to create iconic pop art pieces.
