Screen Printing Class

Transfer your own designs to fabric with the art of screen printing



5 hours Class size 4 to 10     label $200 ($100 per class surcharge applies for private classes)

Learn how to transfer your own designs to fabric with the art of screen printing in this Melbourne class!

In this class, you will learn the basics of screen printing including effective setup, equipment needed to do this at home and the best way to translate your design to stencil. You will learn how to print multiple colours and how to print a repeat pattern.

You will go home with an information sheet including all the info about the techniques taught, your printed designs and the knowledge to continue at home.

Please note: You will be creating stencils in this workshop, not emulsion screens. We have a separate workshop for the emulsion method. We highly recommend taking this stencil workshop first.

The following can be purchased on the day:

  • Cotton tote - $10 each
  • Cotton tea towels - $10 each


Knowledge required

Wow what can I say….

This course exceeded my expectations. Nichola was amazing and explained everything thoroughly. She spent a lot of time one on one which was appreciated. I honestly didn’t think that I could start screen printing anytime soon though with the help from Nichola and today’s course; I am definitely ready to purchase supplies and start right away. Obviously a little more practice to get my technique right but otherwise I am fairly confident it won’t be long off.

Thank you so much. I will definitely book to come back for the next course.

The screen printing class at the Handmakers Factory was fantastic. The space is spacious, clean and really well supplied. Nicola, the teacher, is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. Her calm and clear manner made learning a new skill easy. I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn how to screen print.

This workshop is definitely directed at a learning experience rather than socialising. The space, equipment and instruction were exceptional. Nicola was patient and helpful. Really appreciated the day.

Great teacher. Great learning space. Really happy with the tote I printed to take home as well as the opportunities to experiment.

Such a fun & informative class! Gorgeously creative & welcoming space. Everything we needed for the class was provided. The teacher (Stef) was lovely - very knowledgeable & helpful. Stef was great at explaining the overall screen printing process to us, then breaking down each step & explaining the techniques and the use of the tools. Each person could work at their own pace & Stef helped each of us to walk away from the class with our own stencils & designs printed onto calico to keep. I had brought along a canvas tote bag to print on (once Id gotten a hang of the techniques) - so satisfying having a usable item with my artwork on it ready to rock out & I have several designs on calico I can also make use of. Highly recommended this class & I feel I can confidently recommend any other class held by the wonderful people at the Handmaker’s Factory. Looking forward to booking again soon! Thanks so much!
