Joining 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 (Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm with late night opening until 8pm every Wednesday).

We offer three types of membership – Full Print, Associate Print & Student Six Month Membership

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

Student Six Month Membership/£25 for six months

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.

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. Our Print Club sessions are designed as a stepping stone from course participation to membership.

To join us as a Full Print member or an Associate please contact us.

First Edition Fridays

First Edition Fridays are a great way to meet other new members, get into the swing of regularly using the studio and start making new work. First Edition Fridays are supported by the LPW technician team and will occasionally include a technical demo. Check upcoming dates here.

Pay As You Go or Open Access Contract Studio Use

To use the Studio, either drop in, pay as you go for £3.60 an hour (capped at £20 per day), or Full Print Members can use the LPW Studio to make their work with unlimited access during our opening hours for £65 a month. Talk to us about taking out a Open Access Contract for a minimum of six months.
