Grab a glass of wine before we get started and pop on a name tag.  Now.  Screen printing is heaps of fun. Seriously.  People come along, start screen printing and then begin looking around for anything that's not nailed down to print on!  Actually, it doesn't have to be nailed down... 

In this workshop you'll learn the very basics of screen printing, then you choose from our super cute designs and print them onto your very own tea towel to take home.  We've got a couple more tea towels on hand for $8 if you start to think you need one for Mum, Dad, Grandma, Nana, Paul down the road...

This is a great taster for the big wide world of screen printing.  After trying it out, you should chat to the teacher about longer courses available around town where you could learn about making your own screens, the different techniques to making them and more.

Thread Den

Vendor sincce 2013

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes? 

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

On occasion, Thread Den is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach people to sew, knit and crochet, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.

15 August 2017 • Intro to Screen Printing!

I was disappointed with the class as I had recommended Thread Den. The class was basic and average value for money. The lesson on how to screen-print was about 15mins, which was fine. The remaining hour and 45mins of the class was to work on a single tea-towel project. This was okay, except there were only 6 screen-print images to choose from and 3 colours.
