Print Studio

The Bluecoat Print Studio is a vibrant open access printmaking facility based within the Bluecoat Gallery and studios in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. We are committed to promoting and facilitating the exploration of print via workshops, exhibitions, residencies and offering low cost rental of our studios to artists. 

We have both a screenprint and etching studio which experienced printmakers can hire throughout the week. If you are an experienced printmaker and would like to find out more about hiring visit our hiring the print studio page.

We also offer introductory workshops for beginners and intermediate workshops for those who would like to expand their print knowledge all taught by experts in their field which are all listed below and on our courses and workshops page.

Workshops

Intro to Screenprint

This one day workshop equips you with the knowledge to be able to print from start to finish.

Tabletop Printmaking

Sat 9 July, 11am-5pm

Learn about techniques that require little or no equipment that you can use at home or in the studio.

Printmaking doesn’t always require lots of equipment and there are lots of techniques that you can use either at home or in your studio. As these techniques can be used outside of the studio you can be more experimental with your interpretations of them. If you are a busy person and just want to print at home in your spare time this workshop is also for you. Within this day you will learn about positive monoprinting, linocut and collagraph. No prior experience required and the workshop will differ from intro to Printmaking so feel free to book onto both.
