Our printmaking course is perfect for someone wanting to delve deeper into the world of printmaking, learn a completely new creative skill with other creatives. This class is kept small as we offer individual progression in many different printmaking techniques. Our tutor will start by introducing the first technique, of which you're able to move at your own pace with.
At the end of each session our tutor will demonstrate a new technique for you to see, so when you are ready to move on you will have more of an understanding of what you may like to go onto next. Depending on how many classes you have signed up for, expect to cover two techniques in the 4 sessions. Printmaking techniques that are available include:
Linocut & Linocut Reduction
If you have any specific techniques that you already know you would like to cover then please do let us know when you sign up. For beginners we do recommend starting with Lino.
Our teaching is friendly, supportive and directed towards personal development in what you would like to achieve. A lot of our students do carry on from term to term to get an even more in depth understanding with the variations of printmaking on projects they can start to envision. If you already have a project in mind or imagery you would like to work from thats great, bring it along, if you don’t thats not a problem, we have many books to inspire you.
If you have any more questions or would just like to have a chat with us then please do give us a call on 020 7223 6767 or email us.

What experience do I need?
You can be a complete beginner or already have experience. Our tutor will take you step by step on all processes. Due to our intimate class, you have a choice of taking part within the group or working more independently.
What will I go home with?
Over the course you will go home with many variations of prints, some days you may spend more time on the plate itself however the next session you can print from 10 - 15 prints on the size of A5-A4 sizes of paper.
Do I have to bring any materials?
We provide all materials including tools, inks, rollers, plates, plastic and paper. If you would like to produce and substantial amount of prints above the normal amount you can either bring your own paper or buy some at the studio.
What if I cant turn up to a class?
You will need to specify dates you will not be attending, and pay the full amount before the first class. We will try and arrange for you to join another date if there is space but unfortunately this can not be guaranteed.
What if the course is cancelled?
We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason, this may be down to insufficient bookings etc. In the event of a cancellation we shall of course give you a full refund.
