4 hour workshop
Join Lavender Print School in their cosy studio in Battersea for this 4 hour workshop, we will take you back to the earliest technique of printmaking ‘Woodcut’. You’ll be taught how to carve your woodblock with specialist tools and techniques. Your’ll learn how to print your blocks onto 310gsm south bank paper using traditional barens and rollers, printing a variation of beautiful unique prints to take home to hang.
We have all seen the very famous ‘The Great Wave of Kanagawa’ By Katsushika Hokusai, its one of the worlds most celebrated works of art. A prime example of the ukiyo-e practice, this Japanese print has inspired artists and viewers for nearly 200 years and we cant wait to show you the traditional technique to produce your very own print. This workshop will allow you to follow in the foot steps of the great Japanese masters and allow you to experience the wonderful therapeutic technique. Choosing from a number of different Japanese prints that will be presented on the day, you can choose which print you would like to work from.
This class is perfect for anyone who would like to be submerged in a day of printmaking and who would like to learn from knowledgable, friendly tutors, who will guide you on every step of the creative journey. Whether you're a complete beginner, or at a more intermediate level, we tailor our teaching style around each individual.

About your host, Lavender Print School
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.
Refreshments and aprons are provided but it's always good to come in messy clothes.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
