Screen Printing and Shibori Dyeing Class

Learn how to print and dye fabrics

5 hours Class size 10 to 15     label $110

In this hands on class you will learn how to screen-print your own designs (or a studio design) from exposing screens with photo emulsion and a light box to printing then stripping the screens. Screen printing allows you to replicate a visual design across surfaces (e.g. fabric). There will be plenty of room for experimentation.

You'll also learn the ancient Japanese art of Shibori dyeing. In this taster session you'll learn to manipulate fabrics with tiles, clamps and an array of folding, stitching and tying techniques to achieve unique aesthetics. Be amazed as indigo vat dyed pieces oxidise before your eyes and turn from green to blue.

I’ve been facilitating open to the public DIY screen-printing studios in Sydney for the past 13 years across a few independent creative spaces such as Anyplace studios in Rozelle, Blackwire records in Annandale and currently run The Printroom out of Monster Mouse Studios in the industrial landscape of Marrickville.

I studied textile design at the Eastern Sydney Institute of Technology and instead of being disheartened by the move of hand printing to digital forms and sitting behind a computer all day, I decided to start my own studio. This could not have been achieved without the support and head start afforded to me by Anyplace projects - a group of folks who reclaimed unused buildings and transformed them into creative community driven spaces.

I spend most of my time teaching people how to screen print, Shibori dye fabrics and other surface design techniques. I print a lot of band merch for friends and friends I haven’t met, and help run Monster Mouse Studios as well as work on my own artistic practice.
