The society was established in 1919 with origins in the etching class of the London Central School of Arts and Crafts. Responding to the rise of Modernism, it was founded to proclaim the value of good draughtsmanship.
The inaugural exhibition was held in 1921 and the Society gained general recognition when Sir Frank Brangwyn became an early President.

It has more than 100 elected members who are professional artists, illustrators and printmakers from all areas of the art world working in all drawing and printmaking media.
