Privacy Policy

Leeds Print Workshop is a co-operative printmaking studio based in Patrick Studios, East Street Arts’ main hub in central Leeds. We provide access to print facilities and a space to work for anyone interested in printmaking. As well as catering for all the established printmakers out there in Leeds, we also run classes to bring new people to the medium. Leeds Print Workshop does not operate to make a profit (and as such does not share or sell any of your data), but this Privacy Policy explains what data we hold, and why we hold it.

Booking Courses
When you book courses at Leeds Print Workshop we use a third-party provider, Eventbrite, to manage bookings. Please see their privacy notice. We will use your email address to keep in touch with you about the course you’ve booked and, occasionally, to let you know about future courses that may be linked with what you have already booked (for example, if you have booked a beginners’ course, we may let you know that we’re running an intermediate course in the same process). Let us know if that’s not okay by emailing us at We will not add you to our mailing lists. We may check that we have the correct email address at the start of a multiple session course and update it appropriately.

When you become a member at Leeds Print Workshop we will collect your mailing address, telephone number, email address and the details of an emergency contact. This will be used to contact you with regard to your membership and use of Leeds Print Workshop only. We use a third party provider, MemberMojo, to process this information.

We may share some of your contact details with East Street Arts (the owners of Patrick Studios), only where necessary for health and safety purposes. See their privacy policy here.

Sharing of Data

Social media
Any social media posts or comments you send to us (on the Leeds Print Workshop Facebook page, for instance) will be shared under the terms of the relevant social media platform (e.g. Twitter/Facebook/Instagram) on which they are written and could be made public.

Other people, not us, control these platforms. We are not responsible for this kind of sharing. We recommend you should review the terms and conditions and privacy policies of the social media platforms you use. That way, you will understand how they will use your information, what information relating to you they will place in the public domain, and how you can stop them from doing so if you wish.

Any posts or comments you make about us or our services on any of our blogs, reviews or user community services will be shared with all other members of that service and the public at large. Any comments you make on these services and on social media in general must be not offensive, insulting or defamatory. You are responsible for ensuring that any comments you make comply with any relevant policy on acceptable use of those services.

Paper documentation is shredded when no longer required.
