Looking for a creative way to add some colour to your space? Give this printing workshop in London a whirl! Over the course of four weeks, you'll learn the fundamentals of both sugar lift and carborundum printing techniques, and how to use them in tandem for a huge variety of ways to express your inner artist.

Guided by a friendly local artist who specialises in these techniques, you'll learn how to prepare an acrylic etching plate and use sugar lift to create painterly splashes of colour, how to build up texture with carborundum powder, and how to ink and print the plates to enhance these dazzling effects. Whether you're just starting out with printing or want new techniques to add to your repertoire, this course will give you the tools you need to unleash your imagination on paper like never before.

You'll not only leave the course with a variety of beautiful prints to grace your walls or give as thoughtful gifts, but you'll also be brimming with new skills and techniques to continue your new hobby at home.
