Learn new printing techniques for tea towels, and more, with our Printing in Sydney.

Self-confessed “Queen of the Tea Towel”, Ro Cook, will show you her tricks of the trade in this one-day screen printing workshop.
Did you know tea towels were once a prestigious item used only by the female head of the household to clean her finest china? Now we can make them useful pieces of art for everyone!

You will take home quality tea towels with unique printed designs and the knowledge to continue to print fabrics using hand-cut stencils.
