Nestled in the heart of East London, Print Club was set up in 2007 by Fred Higginson, Kate Newbold and Rose Stallard for budding and established screen printers to let their hair down and get their hands dirty.

These days, it not only acts as a studio space and members club, throwing annual poster shows where ordinary people can buy affordable art, but as a place for beginners to learn the much-coveted craft of screen printing. Offering one-day beginners courses, they help novices to, create their very own print from scratch, using their real-life hands and real-life tools. It’s nice to put the computers away for a day.
