Discover the art of printmaking with this beginner-friendly class in Battersea!

3 hours Class size 1 to 8     label £60

Looking for a new hobby to indulge in this summer? Get your print on with this fun art class in London!

This introductory workshop is a great way to kick start your printmaking journey. Your friendly teacher (and printmaking expert!) will teach you two techniques: lino and drypoint. After that, it'll be up to you which one you will explore for the rest of the workshop.

What is drypoint printmaking?

Drypoint is a fun form of printmaking that involves scratching an image into a thin plastic or metal sheet using a variety of tools. The lines made are then filled with ink and finally, transferred onto paper.

What is lino printmaking?

Lino, also known by those in the business as 'relief' printing, works in the opposite way to drypoint. With lino printing, you start by cutting away everything but the image, then ink the outlying surface and then finally print onto paper.

This adventurous arty class perfect for creative enthusiasts, beginners or someone who's simply looking for a new hobby or fun things to do in London.

By the end of your introductory printmaking workshop, you'll not only have a whole host of newfound knowledge and skills but also your very own prints to take home and admire.

The introduction to print making class was wonderful. We had the option to either do dry print or lino print and everyone in our class chose the latter. The teacher was fantastic! Very attentive - constantly walking around and checking in on people, giving helpful tips and support throughout. The venue was easy to find and all materials were provided. So pleased with my final work! Thank you!

It was a great course. The time flew by and was so fun. I’d never done any printing before and Lorenzo was so helpful and engaged with the class.

Lorenzo was a great instructor. We learnt about lino and drypoint techniques before deciding which one we wanted to try. Lorenzo helped with our compositions, then showed how to use the tools and the printing press. We got to make lots of prints trying out different colours and papers. It was really enjoyable and I learnt a lot about the basics of lino printing.
