UK United Kingdom
Showcasing some of the best of Edinburgh’s printmaking talent and including works created on site in collaboration with internationally renowned artists. This is Edinburgh Printmakers’ largest annual exhibition, and offers an unprecedented range of style, subject and medium. The resulting exhibition has something for all tastes and its festive timing makes it the ideal opportunity to find that special gift!
Established in 1967 as the first open access studio in Britain, Edinburgh Printmakers (EP) is dedicated to the promotion of contemporary printmaking practice.
It achieves this by providing, maintaining and staffing an entrance free gallery and inexpensive, open access print studio, where artists and members of the public can use equipment and source technical expertise in order to develop their hands on printmaking skills.
As a not for profit organisation that is also a registered charity, EP receives approximately 50% of it's funding through revenue and project funding from the Scottish Arts Council as well as support from the City of Edinburgh Council. This enables the organisation to highly subsidise the cost of using the print studio, making access to creative facilities affordable to a wide range of people. This includes professional artists, students, community groups and members of the public, who wish to develop new or existing skills.
