Screen Printing Workshop - Five Hours

Learn screen printing for beginners with studiotroika in Fitzroy North



5 hours Class size 1 to 8     label $200 - $220 ($220 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $200 for 2+ guests)


In this unique Melbourne workshop, you will be introduced to the basics of screenprinting, gaining an understanding of the equipment and materials needed.

During this five-hour class, you will learn a variety of techniques and have time to create a range of prints using paper stencil designs and experimenting on supplied calico cloth. We also have many designs exposed onto screens which you are welcome to experiment with.

Our studio uses eco-friendly water-based inks and we will provide each participant with a tea towel or tote bag (your choice) which you can print with your original design and take home.

Extra tea towels and tote bags are available to purchase at $5 per item or you can bring t-shirts, pillowcases or tea towels with you to print your original design onto (100 per cent cotton or linen works best).

This is a fun class focused on learning the basic techniques of screen printing and then exploring the myriad ways screenprinting can be utilised.
Come along, grab a squeegee and get creative!

Please note: If there is a more complex image you would like to expose on-screen (photographic image etc), 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.
