Do you love fabric? Colour? Texture? Patterns?

Have you always wanted to learn to screenprint?

This workshop will help you understand the basic techniques of screen printing and transferring designs onto fabric through handcut stencils and mark making. I will show you how to transfer your design ideas using stencils and various brushes and stamps to print your own little fabric collection.  You will learn tips and tricks to be able to continue printing at home if you so desire. 

The possibilities of transferring your own mark onto fabric are endless!

Come and join me at River Studios for a day filled with colour, texture and printing.

What to bring:

Wear clothes you don't mind getting a bit of ink on or bring an old apron to wear.

Your lunch - fridge, microwave and sandwich toaster all available. Morning tea will be provided with tea and coffee. Please note that there are no cafes within walking distance of studio.

Ideas, pictures or drawings to use as inspiration for your designs. There will be plenty of inspiration available on the day too!

Feel free to bring your own fabric to print on. Natural fibres only please as the inks used are best suited for fabrics such as cotton, linen or hemp. Light coloured fabrics are best.

You will go home with your own bundle of printed fabrics that can be transformed into a tote, small zipper pouch, cushion cover and so much more! You will also receive an information booklet which will include some of the techniques learned and how to continue at home.

Please note workshops are non refundable. Please be sure to check the date before booking. Please read our terms and conditions here before booking.

Wonderful experience

I attended Simone’s most recent workshop and was so fortunate to have a master class with her. I love fabric and design but am a complete novice when it comes to creating your own design and screen printing. Simone took me step by step through the process and encouraged my creativity and before I knew it the day was gone and I had created some gorgeous fabrics to make tote bags and cushions! I was totally immersed for the whole day with delightful company and beautiful art. I can’t recommend this workshop highly enough and will definitely be back to continue this creative journey. Thank you so much Simone for a wonderful day. xx

Fantastic Workshop

Thoroughly enjoyed the fabric printing workshop with Simone. Small friendly group which made it easy to get one to one assistance and advice. Steps and techniques were clearly demonstrated and Simone was a great teacher. So pleased with my 4 prints completed on the day. And used them to make cushions covers at home. Excited to try some printing at home. A very enjoyable day. Would recommend.

workshop

I was one of the lucky ones who attended Simone's first ever workshop in screen printing and it definitely did not disappoint. Simone is a friendly, informative, nourishing teacher who works closely with you to produce the very best results. I took along my own fabric which I intended to make into garments and I was very pleased with the result. Fantastic day all round, thank you Simone.

Exceptional quality fabrics and customer service

Every product I have purchased from Simone is exceptional. Her designs, fabrics, colours, are of the highest standards and quality. Every piece of fabric feels like a piece of art that I get the privilege to create into a different form. I love the fabric bundles- always a surprise to find what pieces arrive. The beeswax wraps are again quality products and the three sizes very practical for a range of items from cheese, pastry, vege, anything. Easy to clean and reuse. Buying items through website is easy, packages arrive quickly and always wrapped with a personalised note. It’s like Christmas! Simone is friendly and helpful and I highly recommend Femke textiles.
