There are more than 70 courses teaching printmaking in the UK. Most students can't afford to buy their own printmaking equipment when they complete their studies so printmaking workshops are vital for their continuing practice. Even when printmakers have their own equipment they use these workshops to gain experience, to benefit from the expertise of the people who run them and as information resources.
This directory lists all the print workshops in the UK, giving details such as address, the type of equipment they hold, space available, courses, shows etc. There are also lists of editioning houses/print publishers as well as the major print workshops outside of the UK. Countries covered include the USA, South America, South Africa, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, Israel and Cuba.
The directory also includes comprehensive lists of suppliers, print societies, print fairs, established international opens and galleries in the UK that specialise in prints.
