How to use the studio

We run a membership scheme for artists who want to use our studio. Becoming a member of Leicester Print Workshop means joining our friendly community. The membership fee helps to ensure that our facilities can be maintained and available for use during our open access hours.

We offer two types of membership – Full Print and Associate Print

Full Print Membership/£55 per annum (£45 concession rate for those in full time education or in receipt of benefits or a state pension) plus £7 admin fee

Associate Membership/£25 per annum

Full Print Members can use the LPW Studio to make their work with unlimited access during our opening hours for £65 a month. Drop in, pay as you go use of the Studio is £3.60 an hour.

Membership is open to anyone who is comfortable working independently in the studio. You might have plenty of printmaking experience or you might have been on a LPW course or two. Prior to using the workshop, all new members attend an induction. This is a three hour supervised session where you can familiarise yourself with the studio and receive a health and safety briefing, at the same time our Studio Team will ensure you have the information you need to work independently and sometimes at this stage the team might suggest a little more learning or a one to one session just to top up your knowledge. There is a charge of £40 for the induction.

Student Six Month Membership

As well as offering concession rate for Full Print Membership to full time students (£45), we offer a six month membership for £25. You can download a Student Application form here.

If you would like to join but are not wholly confident that you can work alone in the studio we recommend that you attend a course from our current programme, alternatively you are welcome to arrange bespoke one to one classes to suit your particular interest or level of study.
