Learn how to design and screen print your own custom t-shirt



3 hours Class size 1 to 8

Ever had that ‘great t-shirt print idea’ that you wanted to print? Well, this is your time to shine!

We provide everything you need to design and print a one-colour screen print on a premium AS colour t-shirt Included in your class fee.

The workshop is held at Factory X Project's purpose-built t-shirt screen printing studio at Marrickville, in the heart of Sydney’s Inner West. You can bring friends or family and each one of you has at your fingertips your own laptop loaded with our super easy design tool (BYO laptop if you like), a professional one-colour print press, a squeegee and other bits and pieces you'll need, and loads of ink colours to choose from.

Your friendly instructor will take you through the basics of designing and screen printing a t-shirt and within three hours have you printing like a pro!

Not a designer? Don't worry. We have a library of templates and stock art you can edit or add to or simply use as inspiration. You might just surprise yourself!

So join us in our relaxed, fun factory atmosphere on your own and meet like-minded people, or bring a group and have some laughs. BYO wine and snacks. No experience necessary, just a mindset to try something new, have some fun and get creative!

Simply request to book and get in touch about customising the workshop for kids birthday parties (eight and above), team building activities, hens and bucks night ideas, brand merch print parties and private in-depth training.

1983 we started hand printing t-shirts out of a garage in Dee Why. Over the 37 year journey, we’ve moved to automatic machinery and printed more than 20 million garments sold into the Australian market.

Our clients have included:

  • Various music artists such as The Rolling Stones, Metallica, Bryan Adams, Cher and many more
  • Large Corporates such as Apple, Oracle, Telstra, Qantas and many many more

We still love the process and the Factory X Project is a project that provides us with the opportunity to share the wealth of knowledge we’ve gained along the way in an enjoyable and relaxed way. What good is knowledge if it isn’t shared! What good is learning new knowledge if it isn’t fun! What good is your inherent creativity if it isn’t X Pressed!

Kenneth was an amazing teacher, incredibly knowledgeable and very patient. I took my 8 year old son along with me and he has worn his t-shirt for the last three days—he is so proud of it!
I am definitely going to go back and print more, will take my son during the Christmas holiday too.
I can highly recommend this class. The facility is great and Kenneth has put together a really great workshop—which means you learn enough to come away feeling very satisfied.
Thank so much FactoryX, we will be back.

This was a fantastic afternoon! Kenneth was a staff member down but still catered to all in every way. His experience and knowledge are very obvious.
He was professional in all regards with a great sense of humour. Not to mention a music playlist to die for!
I can highly recommend this workshop to everyone both young and old. My 13yo son also attended and hasn't stopped telling folks of the fun we both had.
Triple AAA rated!
