The print studio is an intimate space, in a quiet mews yard. It is a great place to work.

Membership options


We are a creative and sharing community of printmakers. Members are a friendly bunch, usually up for giving help or advice to each other. Some of us focus on a particular technique in their practice, others explore multiple processes. We respect each other’s space and time.

We have two types of annual membership – one for experienced printmakers, which allows unlimited unsupervised access – and one for those printmakers who want a bit of support (and someone to share a cup of tea with!), when a member of staff is also at work in the studio.

We aim to make sure that there are no more than 4-5 people printing at a time, so that you can get on the press you need and get on with your work.

If you don’t need the long-term access that our memberships offer, it is also possible to use the studio on a short-term project basis. Contact us directly to discuss this.

We also offer an editioning service, one-to-one or small group tuition, classes and workshops.

SooMin Leong

SooMin Leong’s practice is inspired by travelling and journeys, both literally and through the printmaking process. The interaction of different layers with colours and textures plays an important role in her work as each piece is a story informed by the experience and impression of travelling.

Chris studied Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art, MA Art in Architecture at East London University and a multidisciplinary MA Art at London Metropolitan University. Chris runs our drypoint courses.

Sarah Gürsoy-Heuser

Sarah Gürsoy-Heuser is an artist and educator. Her practice explores ideas of national identity, collective memory, and how land and borders become central sites for tension. She uses landscape as subject matter, fragments of text to suggest ideas of place/time and provoke a sense of foreboding and unease.

Sarah Gillett

Sarah Gillett is an artist and writer investigating the life of things across space and time. She graduated with an MA in printmaking from the Royal College of Art in 2015. Her practice explores histories of belief, ritual and storytelling in order to question our place in the universe today. Sarah manages the stories on our website.

Eleanor May Watson

Eleanor May Watson is a visual artist working primarily in paint and print, creating images of home in which to contemplate memory, longing, desire and belonging. In 2021 she won the Eames Fine Art Award at the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair.

Dolphin, HQS Wellington III

These “dolphins” – freestanding, powerful moorings appear all along the Thames. According to a very helpful contact at the Port of London Authority they come in all shapes, sizes and materials so that there is no clear definition.

This is a print which utilises a number of different techniques including aquatint etching, carborundum relief and chine colle. The combined effect generates different textures and colour to (hopefully) convey something of the complex sensory experience of the seaside.
