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.

It was my first time trying drypoint and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m definitely going to sign up for more classes. Ben is a fantastic teacher, really knowledgeable and encouraging.
Francine - May 5th
From the outset, Luke Wade was welcoming and positive so even an inept beginner like me felt encouraged. The group was small enough for there not to be any crowding or waiting for equipment and Luke appeared to give support and guidance across the levels of ability. I would definitely return.

This is an absolutely fun workshop, where Luke and Liorah teach with great enthusiasm. They support each attendant through their respective project and help with ideas for prints and explain all the tools, materials and where to get them. They also encourage people to leave their comfort zone when working by showing not only Lino cut, but also gradient colour lino cut and reduction lino cut for those interested, as well as Chine colle techniques when printing with drypoint etching plates. I learned so much that I am now regularly preparing my own plates at home since, thank you very much both for the excellent session.

Small and friendly print school on Lavender Hill in Clapham

Founded by artist Izzy Moreau who believes that, in this age of technology, it is important to escape sometimes into the hands-on world of traditional arts and crafts.

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.

Great workshop! Luke and Liora were friendly and knowledgeable. I tried out drypoint etching for the first time, having only tried lino cutting in the past. It was a super encouraging class that got me experimenting with different printmaking techniques. The studio is comfortable and welcoming. I will definitely be back!

Great instructor, really nice guy and helpful teacher. Fun afternoon, I'd go back and do it again.One bit of constructive feedback - the postcode you list for the location is incorrect, so I was about 30 minutes late to the class. Might want to fix that!
