Glasgow Print Studio was founded in 1972 as an artist led initiative providing facilities and workshop space to artists using fine art printmaking. Now, as an internationally acclaimed center of excellence in fine art printmaking, the Studio promotes contemporary and innovative printmaking through supporting artists, exhibitions, learning and conservation.
On the fourth floor, the workshop facilities include a Takach motorized etching press, a Rochat etching press, a Columbian Eagle press (seen above) and a Bewick and Wilson “Clydesdale” motorized press.
Over 200 artist members are allowed access to the workshop. A system of session fees, paid daily, quarterly or yearly contributes to the cost of consumables provided by the workshop such as inks, solvents and related print chemistry, rags and cleaning materials. Members can also exhibit in Studio’s gallery and sell in the retail gallery. http://www.glasgowprintstudio.co.uk/
