I’ve been facilitating open to the public DIY screen-printing studios in Sydney for the past 9 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.

Carizza has a lovely manner and style. She was very organised and that meant we were able to cover a lot of different techniques in the 2 hours. She is knowledgeable about her craft. I learnt a lot and very glad I attended.

Diane Townley • Jul 2019

This was a great workshop. Carizza is a very positive, friendly and helpful teacher. She had lots of samples to inspire us. We learnt a variety of techniques and produced a wide range of interesting samples ourselves in just a few hours. It was a good introduction to the possibilities of the Shibori dyeing technique and made me want to explore more.

Giordana Brewerton • May 2019

The workshop was great fun and well planned. Being able to do a few sample pieces before our own was perfect to ensure we got the technique correct and liked the pattern before hand.
I now have amazing linen bed sheets and pillows that I can't wait to put onto my bed.
I think I'll even come back in the future to finish my dream curtains!
Thanks so much for a.great morning

Carizza was an exceptional teacher . She explained the procedure with samples and demonstrations in an easy to catch on manner and we were then able to start creating our own samples, with Carizza on hand to make suggestions and assist. I was amazed at how effortless , she made it all seem. One of the most enjoyable workshops I have ever participated in.

Anita Turnbull • Apr 2019

This class was well organised by Carizza, demonstration pieces and examples, materials, fabric and dye bath ready to go. The teaching space is set up well with work tables, dyeing and drying spaces. Carizza taught techniques that are easy to follow, but the potential for adding greater detail by combining was also explained and more advanced textile samples were on display to inspire us. Carizza is very welcoming and her knowledge of the indigo dyeing process meant that all our questions were answered in detail. It was great fun too and we got to take a range of our pieces home.

Katrina Tarrant • Dec 2018

Carizza was fantastic, letting us quickly go to town on our fabrics both brought and supplied. Loved that there was a great selection of fabrics and she was so obliging with how many things we all personally brought to dye also. Nice space, fresh air, clean. We all love our unique shibori garments. Thanks Carizza.

Victoria • Sep 2018

•What was the teacher like? Carizza explained things very simply which was good and helped us a lot.
•How was the venue? very convenient location
•If materials were provided, did you like them? Yes. It would be good to have the option to buy extra materials as well.
•Was the class good value for money? Yes. The time however went very fast. It would be if possible with all Class Bento workshops to buy some extra time to stay longer and finish projects that would be great as they all seem to be very fast. The teacher has offered to the option to re-enrol again to finish projects which is appreciated.

Carizza was super friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time learning many different shibori techniques and getting to be experimental with all sorts of materials and objects. We walked away with a fun new skill and many beautiful shibori artworks.

Spent a lovely morning with Carizza who explained the various design techniques of shibori which we practiced on a variety of different materials, a very relaxing and enjoyable class.

Textiles workshop review by Yolanda
Wondering whether we learn how to use the traditional indigo dyes?

The class uses natural indigo dye but in a powder form. I prepare the vat prior to the class so there is ample time to prepare fabrics and dye due to the class only running for 3hrs. Preparing indigo vats from leaves takes days and I have only ever used the powder forms. The class is focused on the resist dyeing techniques (folding, binding, clamping fabrics) used in shibori dyeing.
