Our new Arts Council England funded etching facility will be fully operational from the beginning of February 2017
We just need a bit of training in January to get us up to speed and iron out any problems before we open the doors to everyone!

Almost equally exciting, we have just unwrapped our new large format digital printer and are soon to take delivery of two new Hunter Penrose Etching Presses!

 











 




 
 
 





















Ochre Print Studio is committed to promoting the artist/printmaker’s creative process.

We support this through providing a programme of residencies, exchanges and internships.
