3 hours Class size 1 to 2

label $150 (Afterpay available)

In this screen printing workshop in Marrickville, you will discover how to screen print onto lengths of fabric so that you can create garments, table runners or bedding, as an example. It's a fantastic opportunity to explore the more mathematical side of textile printing.
Don't worry if you have no prior experience in screen printing. This is a beginner-friendly class with a step-by-step introduction. You'll be taken through the entire repeat printing process, from laying out the fabric and preparing the pre-exposed screen, to setting up the print table and finally printing. You'll also learn about fabric curing and how to ensure the longevity of your prints.
By the end of the workshop, you'll have a length of fabric that you hand-screen printed yourself and the knowledge of how to repeat print at home. You'll also receive reference notes to help you remember the techniques you've learned. As a bonus, you'll receive a discounted coupon for our next workshop in this series, where you'll learn how to Design Repeating Patterns for Meterage Printing.
This class is suitable for ages 16 and up, making it a great option for parent and teen bonding or anyone curious about screen printing lengths of fabric.
The textile studio is located within a working creative warehouse in Marrickville, Sydney, just a short walk from Sydenham station and Marrickville Metro. You'll find ample street parking available on weekends.
Join me for this exciting screen printing class in Sydney and discover the joy of printing onto fabric meterage. Unleash your creativity and take home a unique piece that you can proudly use for a variety of projects.
+ Please Note - This is a hands-on printing class using a pre-exposed screen. Using your own designs is not part of this class. However you can learn how to design a repeating pattern (ready for exposing onto a silk screen) in my Design Repeating Patterns For Meterage Printing Class
