We have spacious facilities including a screenprint area equipped with 7 screen beds, an etching facility boasting 4 etching presses an aquatint room, nitric and ferric etching booths, and a letterpress/relief print area with 2 Albion presses a Columbian and various Adanas and nipping presses. We currently have 230 members. We are the largest open access print workshop in the region.
We are open 5 days a week, plus Thursday evenings and the last Saturday of every month, with technical support on hand from our Technician and Studio Volunteers who help keep the place running smoothly.
Our course programme is undoubtedly one of the biggest print resources in the country with over 50 courses; from one-day taster courses to a year-long comprehensive course. The range of courses is always varied and we freshen up courses with new techniques and approaches for each programme. [We run 3 programmes a year.] Our book and letterpress courses are very highly regarded. We heralded a new year long course last year in The Complete Printmaker and soon found demand really high, enough to run 2 courses and still have a very healthy reserve list. We are running the same again and are really pleased to have introduced The Complete Book Artist and The Complete Printmaker year 2. All four courses were fully booked up in weeks and we are now taking expressions of interest for 2015!
