Bluecoat Artist Membership

Become a Bluecoat Artist and be at the heart of our creative community. You’ll be able to hire our Intaglio and Screenprinting facilities, alongside other perks.

Your membership allows you to be at the heart of our creative community, book our Intaglio and Screenprinting Studios for personal use, and offers some other incredible perks.

The Studios are currently open for hire on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:00am - 5:00pm.
