At Lavender Print School, we have always believed that in today's technology-focused world, there is a desire for people to re-connect with the hands-on methods of traditional arts and crafts.

This is why Lavender Print School is passionate about teaching printmaking in relief and intaglio methods, as well as art-based workshops in painting and drawing.

We also aim to be an encouraging and friendly space for all, which is why all classes are open to all levels of experience and artistic ability. Being a small school, we have a laid-back and supportive atmosphere, so whether you fancy coming alone or with friends, you're sure to feel welcome here!

We had an amazing time- the class was so much fun, and we took home amazing prints. I would really recommend to anyone looking for a fun, relaxed lino class. Thank you

The Lino and sip workshop was so much fun! The teacher was super helpful and accommodating. Everyone got multiple copies of their lino prints and everyone made their own design. The materials were provided and easy to use.

Great teacher, venue and materials. Really enjoyable, laid back class for all levels of experience

Rachel Thomsen Dec 2023

Lorenzo was a brilliant teacher, delivering an informative and engaging work shop. My family and I had a great time and went home with some lovely prints to put up around the home/gift to loved ones. After doing a couple creative workshops, Lino printing has been by far our favourite - I couldn’t recommend it more!

Great relaxed vibes for some Christmas card making! Thank you so much to Esther for organising a fun and equally festive class!

Provided a safe and comfortable space to work in. Clear explanation and guidance on technical aspects. Warm and friendly teacher.

Beth Lardner Nov 2023

The teacher was fun and the class was super relaxed. Loved that it was BYO drink. Thank you so much!

Helen Oct 2023

Very friendly teacher and good structure with demonstrations at the start and then 1hr30 to practise the techniques and paint a landscape based on a photo provided by the teacher. Great materials and wide colour palette.
However, the teaching element was fairly limited so I would recommend as a fun and social activity (BYOB makes it extra special!) but not the best place really to improve and learn new techniques.

Magda Sep 2023

Great teacher-very knowledgeable, calm and helpful.
I loved learning a new skill.
Friendly, supportive atmosphere.

Jordan Buck Sep 2023

We had a great time, the teacher is super friendly and helpful, and you don't need to be good at art! Would recommend!

Really enjoyed this experience. We did it for a friend's birthday and it was great. It was very relaxing and chilled. Eva was a great teacher, she gave us some techniques and then we all just had a go.

Serena Sep 2023

Eva our teacher was really great. She was very down to earth and made us all feel relaxed. She had wine glasses prepared and everything set out on the tables. She gave us a demonstration on different techniques we could use. As we were all new to water colour she made us feel comfortable to ask questions and gave us all a confidence boost. We all had such a great time. I would definitely recommend to others.

Eva was an excellent teacher and gave really detailed explanations of how to use the lino cutting tools and create prints. She also helped us wash our lino plates at the end which was very kind :)

Really nice class. The teacher was very nice and good at explaining the basics. She was always around to answer questions, but the class was not intense or stressful.

The studio was a bit tricky to find and a bit far from the tube stations, but it was a really nice and artsy studio.

All materials were high quality, there was a great variety of high quality paper to make prints on.

5/5 would recommend

Natalie Elgar-Taylor Mar 2023

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!

Robert Foulkes Mar 2023

Relaxing and informative class, would really recommend! The instructor should us various techniques and then let us practice and have free rein!

I really enjoyed the Lino print class. I found the carving part of the session quite relaxing and then the printing part to be fun as it was exciting to see how the images turned out. The teacher was very helpful and gave us lots of tips. I liked the choice of images and I think the class should run this option where you choose from a selection in the future, rather than sticking to one. All the materials were provided and I came away having learnt a new skill. I am keen now to try another one of the classes at this venue.

Jennifer Harding Mar 2023

Learned a lot, very talented teacher, friendly and supportive class environment. Had a great time.

Very chilled atmosphere, super relaxing for a Friday evening, we all enjoyed it very much

Alex Dearden May 2022

Loved the class, the teacher was brilliant and very friendly. Materials were top notch. I learned a lot! I'll definitely be back for the landscape class.

The only thing I would have liked to see more of was instructions and techniques but maybe it was our fault for not asking enough questions?

We absolutely loved our watercolour class on friday night. The teacher was so knowledgeable, clear at explaining the techniques and patient with us (there were only 4 of us total in the class) and it was a very relaxing, meditative 2 hours. We produced some reasonable landscapes!

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.

Harriet Mok Feb 2022

Our teacher Eva was great and so informative. It was a great mix of learning techniques whilst also having freedom to have a play and experiment and choose what we wanted to paint! She gave a lot of great tips which I'll go away and use to try and develop myself! It was also a really fun and relaxed setting and a nice atmosphere.

Amazing class! Really enjoyed it. Our teacher was wonderful - such a lovely person and she created a really warm and friendly environment. Venue was a bit cold but if you wrap up warm it's absolutely fine.

We learnt how to create a Van Gogh style sunflower print. Materials provided were all great and I was really pleased with my finished print. Can't wait to get some materials to try at home!

Nell Brooker Feb 2022

Eva was fun and engaging. Learnt the basics of Watercolour , textures with brushes and moving pigmant around on the paper. The space is relaxed, clean, clear and has good light. All materials provided. Just bring your own wine(or tipple of choice) and a sense of exploration.
