Welcome

The Ropewalk Print Workshop was established as part of the Ropewalk contemporary Art and Craft centre which opened its doors in 2000. It has been used by professional artists and those just starting out to learn the medium over those years. The Ropewalk Print Workshop is now run independently but complements all the facilities the Ropewalk has to offer.

The Ropewalk is a grade 2 listed building running parallel to a tree lined promenade toward the river Humber a short walk away.

The Ropewalk Print Workshop is an Open Access Printmaking workshop run by Artists for the use of anyone interested in Printmaking, we aim to be welcoming, inclusive, nurturing, stimulating and creative. We are bookable for use by professional printmakers and new starters within our region and beyond.

The Ropewalk Print Workshop is on the ground floor with disability access, kitchen and toilet facilities and access to the Ropewalk galleries and coffee shop.

Printmaking with us

We teach Intaglio, Relief and screen printmaking techniques through a combination of regular printmaking groups, taster sessions, one day and half day workshops.

Beginners are well catered for, as are those with a bit more experience. Those with skills that are a bit rusty will find classes to help them brush up and refresh their printmaking practice. Please see our programme for what is currently available or contact us for more information about our workshop. Or call into the Ropewalk and have a coffee and a look around.

Because Printmaking is an art form that can be enjoyed by just about anyone, whatever their age, ability or background, it lends itself well to team and community projects.  We can provide team-building events and personalised projects for a range of groups.
