Equipment, Bookings and Availability

The studio is usually staffed on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s between 1pm and 3pm, or by arrangement – please access our Studio Contact’s details here. Qualified members can make arrangements to use the facilities at other times by contacting the workshop manager.


There is a small etching press set up in the upper level of the stables building and a large etching press and litho press in the weatherboard annex. There are no facilities for etching etc but if you wish to do some printing you will need to show that you are competent to use the machinery and to bring all your own paper, ink, etc.


Your safety is important to us and we operate a non-toxic printing environment.
