Leicester Print Workshop is the Midlands centre for fine art printmaking. We are home to a large open access studio in central Leicester that houses equipment for silkscreen, stone and plate lithography, etching, engraving, relief and letterpress. We offer pay-as-you-go independent access or fully assisted support to artists wanting to make original prints.
We work with schools, community groups and arts partners to teach printmaking skills and we run evening and weekend courses for adult learners.
Our exhibition space has a regularly changing programme of print related exhibitions which are free to view and we often host events and activities including artist talks, demonstrations and free or low cost drop in sessions.
We are open 5 days a week, Tuesday to Saturday, if you want to visit our exhibition or find out more about printmaking, using the studio or booking on a course, please call in and see us.
