Screen Printing Class for Kids (7-13 Years)

Discover just how easy it is to screen print in this kids class!



2 hours Class size 1 to 6     label $45


Searching for fun kids activities in Melbourne? Give your creative child the opportunity to discover just how easy and fun it is to screenprint!

In this two-hour class in Fitzroy North, kids can choose a design, pick a colour, and transform their own t-shirts, hoodies or pillowcases into a unique masterpiece.

We will have screens pre-prepared with a range of prints to choose from. Kids should bring along some plain 100 per cent cotton items so they have plenty to print and take home.

studiotroika uses eco-friendly water-based inks and in the class, we'll be experimenting on supplied calico cloth. We will provide kids with a tote bag which they can print their choice of design on and take home at the end of the class.

We also have many designs exposed onto screens which kids are welcome to experiment with.

This is a fun class focused on learning the basic techniques and then exploring the myriad ways screenprinting can be utilised. Let your kids get in touch with their creative side!

Please note: If your child would like to have one of their own drawings exposed on-screen, please contact your teacher one week prior to your workshop to discuss this. There is an additional charge for exposing your own artwork onto screens ($45).

For us, studiotroika is all about accessing and enjoying screenprint. We have created this beautifully practical screenprint space where people can join us in discovering the joy of screenprint.

The founders of studiotroika are Jo Sloggett and Trish Foxworthy. Jo and Trish have been screenprinting together in Melbourne, as Troika Design, for the last 13 years.

Jo's background is in Fine Art, Interior Design and Visual Arts while Trish's background is in Fashion Design and Screenprint Design. We were part of the design collective at Olive Grove Studios in Brunswick for 10 years, during which time we screenprinted out of our studio in Preston.

Our label, Troika Design created a handmade and handprinted range of womenswear and homewares sold through a range of shops promoting independent designers in Melbourne, including Olive Grove Studios, Inspirasia, Northern Thread, Offshoot, Finki, Berserk, and The Cat's Meow.

Jo and Trish are also working towards creating Melbourne's own open access Screenprint studio The People's Print Studio Ltd, a not for profit social enterprise.

Studiotroika is the testing ground where we begin this journey.
