Edinburgh Printmakers’ Workshop & Gallery

Founded in 1967, this was the UK’s first ‘open-access’ printmaking studio, providing studio space and equipment for professional artists and beginners alike. You can watch printmakers at work in the ground-floor studio, while the 1st-floor gallery hosts exhibitions of lithographs and screen prints by local artists.

They were scheduled to move to new premises in Dundee St in 2019.
