Get Crafty with Home-Work

After a run of sell-out workshops throughout Melbourne and Adelaide last year, Home-Work is coming back to Jam Factory this May, bigger and better!

Created by Jess Wright and Lara Davies, Home-Work is a print-screening and design workshop giving everyone the opportunity to let their hair down, get creative and let their artistic side blossom.

With a combined background in fine arts and graphic design, and numerous successful collaborations; there is no doubt when their creative forces combine print magic is created.

So, if you love getting crafty then this workshop will be perfect for you!

We caught up with the creative duo to find out more about their crafty work:

Can you tell us a bit about Home-Work? Home-Work is a screen printing studio in Brunswick, Melbourne. It’s a beautiful, light filled space where we teach workshops and design and create our own prints and products.

Where did the idea behind print screen workshops come from?
We just felt that there wasn’t anywhere in Melbourne where you could learn to screen print and then continue to use the facilities afterwards. It was something we had always looked for and so we decided to create it – it has developed into a really lovely print community!

Take us through what usually takes place during a Home-Work workshop?
We usually start of by discussing and creating colour palettes and then we give a print demo and let everyone loose on the print table – it’s A LOT of fun!

Do you have to be an artist to attend?
NOT AT ALL! In fact, many of our students have no art or design background. We pride ourselves on creating a fun, pressure free space for ANYONE to learn to print!

What brings you back to the Jam Factory?We had such a ball last time we were there – the Adelaide students were so fearless and so much fun. Jam Factory is an incredibly inspiring space and Daniel To & Emma Aiston who run it are pretty much the greatest duo on the planet – we would move in if we could!

Your previous workshops at the Jam Factory were a huge success? Why do you think they were so popular?
I think there are a lot of people who have always wanted to screen print but don’t really know where to start. I think that we provide a fun, accessible entry point into the amazing cult of screen-printing! Plus, it’s just a really lovely, messy good time!

 Tell us a bit about your recent collaboration with the National Gallery of Victoria design store?
Collaborating with the NGV Design Store was an absolute dream come true! We are OBSESSED with print so to be able to use the iconic artwork of Linda Jackson, Sally Gabori & Michael O’Connell to create products was pretty surreal. We loved every minute of it!
