Epson Printing Workshop

Join us for a 1-day Advanced Fine Art Printing Workshop and learn how to make exhibition-quality prints and advanced colour management for perfect prints. This is designed as an advanced workshop for those who have already attended our Learn to Print Workshop and this basic printing knowledge is an essential base for what we cover. This workshop will go further in-depth and explore the attributes of getting a perfect print, and advanced screen calibration for the best soft-proofing environment.

The workshop is run by Richard Young, a full-time nature and landscape photographer, who has 19 years of printing experience and has worked with Epson as a printer ambassador for the last 5 years. He will teach you the refined printing workflow that he uses for his own exhibition prints.

What You Will Learn

Professional Fine Art Printing Workflow

During the day you will learn advanced editing for print, sharpening and soft proofing your own images. You will then learn how to print on both A2 Epson Surecolor P906 & 24” Epson SureColor P7560 printers and how to select the perfect type of Epson Signature Worthy Fine Art Paper for your photographs. We will finish the workshop by making one of your images into both a 16 x 22″ and a huge 24 x 36” Fine Art Print; the perfect size to be a feature piece in your home. You will leave with advanced printing knowledge and experience and be ready to create exhibition quality prints and printing at home with pro-consumer printers. The workshop includes free access to our online course Advanced Fine-Art Printing with a detailed eBook and videos covering what you have learnt so you can refer to these after the workshop.

The workshop will cover a full printing workflow using Lightroom, from editing, sharpening and soft proofing through to how to output your images to a large format printer. We will also cover paper choice looking at different styles of Epson Signature Worthy Fine Art Papers. Each paper type offers an entirely different impact, adding to the creative style of your photography. We will finish the workshop by turning one of your own images into a beautiful 16×22” Fine Art Print, printed on the Epson Surecolor P906; the perfect souvenir to take home.

Epson Surecolour P906

We will be printing on the latest consumer-based Epson printer, the Surecolour P906. This professional quality printer offers the ability to print in formats up to A2+ (16 x 22″) along with 17” roll paper. 

Epson SureColor P7560

We will also be using the Epson 24” printer, the SureColor P7560, the next generation of wide-format printing and most advanced printer to date. This printer offers the ability to print up to 24” wide and is used by many professional photo labs. 


Epson Signature Paper

We will be printing on Epson’s great range of Signature Papers. Each paper offers a different, unique look. You will have the chance to explore these to find one that suits your photography.


We believe that working in a smaller group provides the best possible learning outcomes. Our printing workshops provide a tutor-to-student ratio of 1:4 or better. Group size is limited to 6, and with a group of 5 or more an assistant will be present to make sure everyone receives the attention they need.



The showroom provides tea and coffee-making opportunities, toilets and a large boardroom with space for printing and editing.


You’ll need to bring your own computer to the course if you want to follow along with the exercises during the workshop. However, if this is not possible, you will still be able to cover the course content and print a file, provided you bring it saved on a USB memory stick.

  • Your own Windows or Mac computer to the course (laptop or desktop)
  • Computer mouse (not just trackpad)
  • Computer power supply/cables
  • External hard drive/storage (if these contain your files)
  • Empty USB stick
  • Lightroom CC Classic (Recommended)
  • Photoshop (Optional)
