The Print Shed


Artist owned Dedicated Printmaking Workshop set in delightful rural location six miles west of Hereford city. The Print Shed is suitable for monoprint, collagraph, carborundum print, etching, lino block, solar plate printing, drypoint and other related processes.  The peaceful setting will allow you some 'metime'.

The Print Shed, housed in thoughtfully converted outbuildings offers

  • specialist print studio
  • drawing studio
  • printmaking courses
  • exhibition opportunities
  • technical help
  • specialist on site framing facility

The use of safe and environmentally friendly materials is strongly promoted.  There are two studio areas, one houses a  Relief Imperial Press - an 1834 chunk of cast iron can be used for lino block, for wood engraving and letterpress images.  It has also been successfully used to block print on to fabric. The second area holds a large Rollaco Etching Press. There is a useful  little kitchen area, a separate area with ventilation for using white spirit. There are toilet facilities.

Artists who work at the Print Shed have asked me about links to their websites so check out the following:
