Print Club

Miller’s Avenue, London, E8 2DS 

In the depths of Dalston you’ll find Print Club, who, as the name suggests, run a series of screen-printing workshops. Their beginner’s class is taught by a professional printer: you will produce 6 copies of an A4 image and by the end you should be able to print on your own in a studio. The two-day Deluxe Workshop goes into much greater detail, with artworking and photoshopping skills taught on the first day, and printing on the second day. The most fun classes, however, are their t-shirt and tote printing ones, as you can bring 4 items to print your designs on and leave with a whole new wardrobe.

Classes in Dalston start from £65. For more information on the workshop, click here

For those that aren’t acquainted with the term, a terrarium is a miniature environment of living plants that thrive off of moisture. Especially great for those who often forget to water their plants. It’s the perfect escape from the concrete jungle and a great way to ground yourself, literally.

Set across two different locations (London Bridge and the OXO Tower), you can join The Ringsmiths to learn the art of wax carving and the sculpting of jewellery where you will form your very own, unique, silver ring.  

The art of carving wax allows you to freely design whatever ring your heart desires due to not being restricted by silver or wire strips. 

Ros and Milena will slowly take you through the basic steps on how to design a comfortable ring from sketching to carving your wax, and once you’re ready, they’ll cast it with recycled silver, finish it and polish it for you. There are extra services available too such as casting with gold, engraving or adding gemstones.  

Workshops start from £85 per person. Bookings can be made here
