Yes. All people using the workshop must become a member and have a induction prior to using the facilities.
We would expect you to have some experience of printmaking and be relatively self-sufficient in using the facilities, however technician support is usually available.
No. Leeds Print Workshop does not offer a commercial printing service or do printing for people. Our main focus is to provide the space and facilities for people to do their own printing.
Unfortunately, due to health and safety considerations, we are currently only running workshops for adults over the age of 16.
We are open most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 10am-4:30pm. There are occasionally some weekdays and evenings when we are open to run courses and for open access for members, however, these hours are not consistent and are advertised to members in advance.
We sometimes have opportunities for volunteers to help on courses, exhibitions or external events but these are usually emailed out to our members in the first instance as we run a timebank scheme (time volunteered can be exchanged for printing time in the workshop).
We offer a discounted membership for students or recent graduates. Members can benefit from a 10% discount on our workshops and courses. Unfortunately we are unable to offer any further discounts as we are a self funded, non profit organisation.
Our workshop membership is for 12 months and costs £50 per year which works out at just £4.16 per month. The student/graduate membership costs £35 per year. Unfortunately we cannot offer this any cheaper or offer a shorter membership.
