Glasgow Print Studio was founded in 1972 as an artist-led initiative providing facilities and workshop space to artists working in the medium of fine art printmaking. Now, as an internationally acclaimed centre of excellence in fine art printmaking, Glasgow Print Studio promotes contemporary and innovative printmaking through supporting artists, exhibitions, learning and conservation.
Unique to Scotland’s cultural landscape and central to the development of Glasgow’s Merchant City as the city's vibrant cultural quarter, the studio's workshop, galleries, education space and other facilities now span three floors of Glasgow’s centre for art and creativity, Trongate 103.
The open access printmaker’s workshop is hub of activity, and a range of other activities such as printmaking classes, workshops for kids and creative family sessions stimulate and inspire people of all ages and abilities.
The workshop also provides support to professional artists through its exciting publication programme, collaborative projects and residency programme.
Engaging exhibitions give visitors the opportunity to explore the styles and techniques used by local and international artists, and to purchase the best in contemporary Scottish printmaking.
Glasgow Print Studio is registered as a charity in Scotland, is foundation funded by Creative Scotland and supported by Glasgow City Council.
