We love printmaking at Slamseys! It’s such a versatile way to express yourself and explore creative possibilities. All printmaking uses a stencil or a plate to make an image using ink. Prints can be made from a single plate or built up using layers and multiple plates or stencils.

If you’re thinking about taking one of our printmaking classes but aren’t sure which one is the best for you, follow the links below to discover the different printmaking techniques.

Relief Printing


All our printmaking classes are held in our beautiful timber barn at Slamseys Farm in Essex. We limit the class sizes (usually no more than six) so that everyone gets individual attention and has a chance to use all the equipment without long waits. Choose and book your printmaking class on the Slamseys website.
