Essex Print Studio was established by Lynne Blackburn & Ian Bailey to provide high quality classes and workshops in all types of printmaking techniques. We invite practising, professional printmakers to design and run exciting and interesting classes, designed to appeal to everyone from interested beginners to professional artists wishing to epand or extend their practice.

Lynne has over 30 years’ screen printing experience and an MA in printmaking from Camberwell College of Arts. She has been printing high quality fine art editions for many artists and art galleries for 10 years and screenprints which Lynne has produced can be seen in galleries, art fairs and exhibitions, both national and international, including the V&A, The Affordable Art Fair, Imitate Modern Gallery, Graffik Gallery, West Bank London and many more.  Lynne also regularly shows her own prints at exhibitions across London and the UK.

Ian has a background in graphic and surface design and over 20 years’ experience in the sign making trade. His skills include the design and production of traditional signage, vinyl printing and cutting and designing original wallpaper and repeat pattern. Ian has 2 of his wallpapers in the V&A permanent collection and he has produced window graphics for exhibitions including at the Royal Geographical society, Lawrence Alkin Gallery, Blackall Studios, Interior Angle and many more.

We founded Hippo Screenprinters, our fine art screen printing studio specialising in printing editions for artists, in 2009. The studio is situated on a farm in Margaretting, close to Chelmsford in the Essex countryside. Since establishing Hippo Screenprinters we have met many artists, fellow printmakers and interested and enthusiastic local people. There is a lot of interest in printmaking and people always love coming to visit us and seeing what we do. So, we decided to start putting on print classes and workshops for the people of Essex. Our vision is to offer a varied selection of interesting classes in a range of printmaking techniques, tutored by invited professional printmakers and artists.
