Printmaking Courses in London & Online

At City Lit, we offer a wide range of printmaking courses, aimed at catering for your interest whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced artist. Our printmaking studio is a communal and collaborative space that celebrates the joy of working alongside others in pursuit of printmaking excellence.

We specialise in etching, screen-printing, relief and multi-media combinations. Our group classes are small, enabling you to learn using a combination of presses and printmaking equipment designed to enable multiple approaches to the medium.

All our tutors are artist practitioners with hands-on expertise. They are there to help you explore and challenge yourself towards making beautiful prints to take home or exhibit.

We offer a range of courses allowing you to choose between online and in-person learning. All our courses are live, interactive, and taught by expert tutors. No matter how you prefer to learn, you’ll receive the same great City Lit experience. See our guide to online learning for more information about accessing our live online courses.

We host exhibitions throughout the year at City Lit Gallery where our students showcase their amazing work.
