For us, studiotroika is all about accessing and enjoying screenprint. We have created this beautifully practical screenprint space where people can join us in discovering the joy of screenprint.
The founders of studiotroika are Jo Sloggett and Trish Foxworthy. Jo and Trish have been screenprinting together in Melbourne, as Troika Design, for the last 13 years.
Jo's background is in Fine Art, Interior Design and Visual Arts while Trish's background is Fashion Design and Screenprint Design. We were part of the design collective at Olive Grove Studios in Brunswick for 10 years, during which time we screenprinted out of our studio in Preston.
Our label, Troika Design created a handmade and handprinted range of womenswear and homewares sold through a range of shops promoting independent designers in Melbourne, including Olive Grove Studios, Inspirasia, Northern Thread, Offshoot, Finki, Berserk, and The Cat's Meow.
Jo and Trish are also working towards creating Melbourne's own open access Screenprint studio The People's Print Studio Ltd, a not for profit social enterprise.
studiotroika is the testing ground where we begin this journey.
