Whether you are looking to dive deeper into the world of textiles, or you simply want to learn a fun new technique, Signature Handprints has a range of public and private workshop offerings to get you started!
Designed for art/ design/ print/ textiles/ interiors enthusiasts, these are more than just screen-printing workshops!
In these hands-on 2.5 hour studio sessions you will receive an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of our print studio. This includes seeing first hand how our iconic wallpapers and textiles are hand screen-printed right here in Sydney. Additionally, we will show you some of the innovations that make our products unique.
Then you will have the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and use our screens to produce a series of screen-printed artworks that you can take home and display with pride! No printing experience necessary – our workshops are suitable for beginners as our team of experienced designers and printers will guide you through the entire process.

Workshops for SCHOOLS / STUDENTS
We currently run a special 1 – 1.5hr program on weekdays for high school and tertiary groups. These are particularly beneficial for those pursuing studies in art, design, textiles or interior design. The sessions are usually part informative, and part hands-on. We aim to give each student a chance to pull a squeegee and produce a print! We are happy to incorporate any relevant project/lesson topics wherever possible.
Please contact Jennifer to arrange a workshop for your class or small educational group.
PREMIUM Studio Experience Workshops
The Premium Studio Experience workshop is designed for our trade clients and industry partners. The session offers a deeper dive into the history of Signature Handprints and the vast library of resources that we have access to. We also go into more depth about the technical processes and materials that we use to produce our hand screen-printed wallpapers and textiles.
Participants will each have the opportunity to choose a design and an ink colour from our collection. Our friendly team will then guide you through the process of producing your own custom screen-printed piece of artwork. This is not only a great deal of fun, but it also provides valuable insight into the true value of bespoke hand-printed design.
These sessions are ideal training opportunities for designers/ design studios and product stockists. However they also are a great option for a unique Christmas party or team outing!
Please contact Jennifer to book a private workshop for your team
