Leeds Print Workshop is the hub for printmaking in the centre of Leeds. The workshop is a co-operative, membership-based printmaking studio, open to all those with an interest in print. We are open for members most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am - 4:30pm.

We offer access to a wide range of printmaking facilities for members. Joining is simple - just click the 'Join/Renew' button, fill in your details and pay! We'll then contact you to arrange an induction in the workshop (you cannot use the workshop before you've had an induction). 

To become a member you must be over 16 and have some previous experience in printmaking and the processes you intend to use in the workshop.
If you are intending to buy membership as a gift for someone, please email us first. Please take a look at the Membership Terms and Conditions when joining.
