Leicester print Workshop's Big Move Update

Leicester Print Workshop is planning its move to the cultural quarter later in the year.   We are currently raising funds and making plans to convert 50 St George Street, (next to Two Queens and round the corner from the Phoenix, Makers Yard, Curve and LCB Depot) into a two storey flagship for printmaking. The ground floor will be a printmaking studio with education and exhibition spaces, a kitchen and room for members to read and to have a cuppa.  The upper floor will have LPW's offices, framing room and room for an artist in residence.   This floor will also house Upper Floor Studios & Workspaces.

We are currently looking at options for the layout and arrangements for the studios & workspaces, and we are inviting expressions of interest from organisations and individuals who might want to share our space with us.  We are governed by certain criteria but essentially we are looking at a combination of private hire studios, common space, longer term rentals and day hire.   If you are interested in finding out more please email  We will hold a meeting in late April at our current premises for everyone who is interested to talk through all the ideas so please do let us know if you are interested and we will be sure to invite you.
