Get a great introduction to the principles of woodworking and screen printing.  Use the concepts and skills you learn to build yourself a beautiful 5 board bench. Once you understand the design and assembly of this simple and robust bench, the design can be modified to form stools, tables, dressers, etc. All tools and materials are included in the class price.

  Woodworking 5 Board bench class will cover:

  • Workshop orientation including OHS procedure.
  • Project action plan and cutting list.
  • Making square cuts.
  • Wooden bench completed by end of class.

Key Skills:

  • Safe workshop practice.
  • Marking and measuring.
  • Square joints.
  • Assembly order and technique.

Screen printing component will cover: 

Screen print your own design onto the top surface of your five board bench. Come with a design concept in mind and we'll help you create it!

In this two hour addition to the class you will:

  • draw your own design on paper;
  • hand-cut a stencil of your design (if you would prefer to use one of our pre-cut designs you are welcome);
  • screen print your design onto the top surface of your five-board bench.


As part of our 'DIY Dinner' series you will also be invited to our final communal dinner on the rooftop of The Old Clare Hotel in Chippendale where your creations will be utilised during the feast.  Your ticket price covers a banquet meal shared with everyone else who has participated in making the table, the plates, the table settings and the carving knives as part of courses held at MakerSpace & Co. You will enjoy a delicious feast served by the amazing team at Barzaari Chippendale (who also have a restaurant in our local Marrickville neighbourhood) and join in a group photo of everyone involved in the DIY Dinner series.

No prior knowledge or experience in design or screen printing is necessary.

All equipment provided, including a wide selection of ink colours.

We recommend you coat your five-board bench with a finishing coat such as varnish before use. This is not included in the course and best done once transported to its new home.
