Coronavirus Update

18th March 2020

To all our friends and supporters, in line with the Government’s advice and to place everyone’s health at the forefront, our Exhibitions and Shop are now closed until further notice.

We understand that this is a very difficult time and we want to do our best to support your wellbeing as well as your continued printmaking.


We are still delivering courses where possible until the end of April (subject to further announcements by the Government), which have now been capped at 8 participants. If you are booked onto an upcoming course, we will be in touch to let you know what your options are. Please see our website for details.


Unfortunately, we have decided to suspend our free family drop in workshops until further notice. This includes our Cultural Quarter Earlies and St. George’s Day activities.

Our monthly In Conversation events and Cultural Quarter Lates have also been suspended until further notice.


Because many artists have been working on their Small Print International 6 submissions, we have changed the submission requirements. If you have finished your print but not yet completed your edition, only one print will be required at the selection stage. You can post your entries to us, or post them through our letterbox. Small Print International 6 is a touring exhibition and has venues booked through 2020-21, although it is possible the schedule may change. We will be in touch with all artists after the submission deadline.


Artist Applications remain open until 31st March. Leicester Print Fair is still currently scheduled for Saturday 11th July, but we are considering alternative dates later in the year. If the event is postponed, selected stallholders will be given a full refund of their stall costs if they cannot make the new date. If the event is cancelled, all stallholders will be given a full refund.

Thanks for your continued support, look after yourselves and we look forward to welcoming you back to LPW in the future.
