WYPrintWorkshop West Yorkshire Print Workshop

Welcome to West Yorkshire Print Workshop. We are an open access fine art printmaking facility based in a former Victorian Church School adjacent to St. Paul's Church in the centre of Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Our primary aim is to support artists and creative businesses by providing open and accessible printmaking facilities, affordable studio spaces and exhibiting opportunities.

There's a regular programme of specialised printmaking courses, from beginners to the more experienced, as well as more general art and craft workshops. We have three main printing rooms in addition to a gallery space which is used to host a changing programme of printmaking exhibitions as well as special events.

We also run a regular series of children's art workshops. To keep informed about when they're running, please sign up to the children's workshop mailing list here.

We are always happy to show individuals or groups around the premises, please contact us if you are interested seeing our facilities.

West Yorkshire Print Workshop now opens six days a week. We have recently increased our opening times to ensure that we can offer days and times to suit the individual needs of artists. Support is available from our Technical Manager Kate Desforges. Please contact us to discuss any assistance that you require. Saturdays are aimed at experienced printmakers who are able to print effectively without technical support.

A booking system operates on a first come, first served basis, you must contact us during normal opening hours to book in advance. This is essential due to limited availability of equipment.

Please note: some courses are run on Saturdays so not all of the facilities may be available every week.
