This is a ClassBento LiveBox class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or just enjoy with some like-minded others. As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft box containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 2-5 business days. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

In this live steaming class, you will learn the basics of screen printing including effective set up at home, equipment needed to do this and the best way to translate your design to stencils.

The live online class will begin by talking you through how to set up your space and how to do it affordably. We will also discuss the materials required and where they can be purchased. We will then move on to how to prepare your stencil, showing you examples of what works and what doesn't.

After this your instructor will demonstrate the set up of a screen and the printing process, showing you tips and tricks along the way! There will also be time to ask questions throughout the process.

This workshop is best watched then practised afterwards so you get the most out of it. A recording of the workshop will be sent afterwards for you to replay and any extra questions you have can be emailed to the instructor.

Loved my class! Informative, loads of tips too. I will do more, and definitely recommend.

Tracey Graham • Sep 2020


The online course was really good. Informative with lots of useful tips. It was great to have the camera with different views so you could see everything being done.

Simone McBain • Sep 2020


Great course! Great for beginners. I can't wait to watch recording and start screen printing!

Mardi Ettelson • Sep 2020


Fantastic class! Nichola covers a lot of detail and really pre-empts any questions you may have had. One of the best class bento classes I've done. Thanks Nichola! Class kit is also great quality and generous supplies. Highly recommend! :)

Amy Fabry-Jenkins • Sep 2020


Great explanations of materials and the dos and don'ts of stencilmaking. We decided to watch the tutorial and try afterwards rather than play along with the tutorial.

Nan Herlihen • Sep 2020


This is my second ClassBento with Nicole from Handmaker’s Factory and the reason I have done another is the wonderful instruction - easy to follow, many camera angles and extra tips means that Nicole puts so much attention to detail in her class content. Nicole is very knowledgeable and is able to translate her knowledge into simple easy to follow steps which has enabled me to learn two new craft skills. The ability to interact and ask questions is what sets Class Bento above any DIY video. The video post class is another bonus as you can choose to watch and learn and do it later or do it as you go with all instructions received prior to get you ready for your class. I’m a very happy attendee, not my first and won’t be my last. Thanks Nicole!

Was a really enjoyable class! Timing was perfect, Nichola was a fantastic host and she prempted our questions before we even had a chance to ask! This was the first online class we've done with 3 camera views and excellent sound quality, we almost felt like we were there! Would highly recommend.

Veronica Beatty • Sep 2020


Nichola was a lovely teacher who spoke clearly, and was easy to understand. I’m so excited by how to make 3dimensional pictures instead of just silhouettes and words. I got started already and plan to make lots of stencils.
Thanks

My daughter loved taking part in this class. Thanks for sharing your craft with us all during these challenging times.

Sally Whittaker • Aug 2020


Loved this class. Kit is awesome, Nicola is a great teacher with clear directions and great demonstration. Am ready to work on my first screen print Yeah

Rini Ismail • Aug 2020


Amazed at how easy this is after reviewing youtube videos on diy screen printing. The craft box has all you need to get yourself started. Nichola will run through the booklet and then show you how to draw and cut your selected pattern. Tips on printing incl. colours and preparing the screen and printing the pattern, cleaning and how to care for your printing and equipment. Multiple video angles and all questions answered in real-time. Definitely a good start now via online class. I'm looking forward to in-class session once this lock-down is over as there's definitely different patterns and colours I want to try. Thanks Nichola!

Claire Cooke • Jul 2020

Joyce Seitzinger • Jun 2020


So enjoyed this. Nichola gave us a process that was easy to follow and shared lots of tips and tricks that will help as we get more experienced. And I was immediately able to put it to use.
