“Like so many good ideas, East London Printmakers began in a pub.” 

Ann Norfield, founder member. 

Now nearly 20 years on, in the second year of their permanent home in Mile End alongside the Regents Canal and beside Mile End Park, East London Printmakers has gone from strength to strength. 

As well as providing professional-standard and affordable printmaking facilities for its artist and designer keyholders, the studio offers workshops and activities suitable for all levels and backgrounds. These workshops feature a wide range of printing techniques including screenprinting on paper and fabric, relief printing in lino, wood and Japanese vinyls and various different approaches to intaglio, including etching on metal. 

Other activities include Open Studio days where everyone can visit the studio, enjoy demos and the ever popular print sale. The Open Access sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays welcome printmakers to use ELP facilities at affordable prices. The organisation supports 47 keyholders, 250 supporters and attracts over 1,000 visitors a year.

Surviving austerity, scything cuts in arts funding, escalating rents and property prices, East London Printmakers remains a remarkable thing: an affordable, professional, exciting and self-supporting arts facility based on the cooperation of its members, creating an accessible and vibrant community where people interested in printmaking can both learn and share knowledge.
