    About this workshop

    In this intro to printmaking class in Battersea you will be wowed by both drypoint and lino printmaking techniques. It's the perfect class for creative enthusiasts or people brushing up on rusty skills.

    In this class

    In this class you will be wowed and amazed because you get to learn 2 type of printmaking: Drypoint printmaking

    • Drypoint involves scratching an image into a thin plastic or metal sheet using a range of metal tools.
    • The lines that are made are then filled with ink and transferred onto paper - cool right?

    Lino printmaking

    • Lino is what we in the business call 'relief' printing and works in the opposite way to drypoint.
    • You will work by cutting away everything but the image, then ink the outlying surface, and print onto paper.

    Now you can

    • print cool banksy images to impress the more artistic friends of yours
    • get to grips with the calming methods of relief printing - trust us, it is mega therapeutic!
    • make the perfect printed cards / posters for your loved ones


    At the end of the class you'll be able to take home the fantastic prints that you've made. You can show off to everyone you know, and the best part? It has all been designed, carved, scratched and printed by you!

    Fun fact

    Famous artists such as Picasso and Matisse used the lino cutting method to make many pieces of work. Picasso has in fact been credited with inventing reduction linocuts, where a piece of lino is used multiple times in one print, being recut after each color has been printed.

    Unlike some of the bigger schools, Lavender Print School is flexible with what it teaches and when so that students can come along at times that suit them during weekdays, evenings and weekends. Drinks and refreshments are always included in the price and bringing along friends and family is encouraged.
