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! Lorenzo is a great teacher, very knowledgeable, he will help and support you leaving your creativity flow at the same time. You'll get to know two print types: drypoint and lino cut and will pick the one you like the most. 3 hours flew by, I tried drypoint but I want to come back to try lino! Highly recommended :)

Teacher had great knowledge and we had plenty of time for demos and to print out our own designs.

Not easy to find the place. But the class was good. Ben was really knowledgeable and put you at ease. My first experience in printmaking was enjoyable. Thank you

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.

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.
