Established in 1984, West Yorkshire Print Workshop is the largest open access printmaking facility in Yorkshire. Nestled in the heart of Mirfield, we support, nurture and promote creative talent through the joy of making prints.
Following Government measures and advice to limit the spread of the coronavirus we have made the decision to close our doors. At the moment we hope to re-open on 20th April 2020, however this will be reviewed closer to the the time based on government advice. We will be posting updates on our social media channels and through our newsletter, so do follow us or sign up to our mailing list if you haven’t already.
We have also made the very difficult decision to cancel all our scheduled courses up until September 2020. If you have a query about a booking, please contact our Education Co-ordinator Caroline Pratt: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will now be focusing on scheduling courses from September onwards, and hope to get these up online and available to book as soon as we can.
We will do our very best to support all our members during this difficult time, if not through provision of print facilities, through online or virtual support. If you are a member and need some technical advice or support, we are still here. Contact Kate in the first instance: email@example.com and she will be happy to organise a phone conversation or web chat.
All our staff team are currently working from home, and our main concern is to make sure WYPW re-opens as strong as ever despite the significant losses we and all charities and businesses are likely to incur. We really need your help with this. Please support us with whatever you can by donating through our local giving.
The current situation is a real threat to small businesses like us, and even a couple of pounds or whatever you would usually spend on a couple of pints on a Friday night will really help us during this challenging time.
We look forward to re-opening and welcoming back all our lovely members in the future. In the meantime stay safe and well.
Our new Autumn/Winter brochures are now available to pick up from the workshop or you can download here. Packed full of exciting new courses, events and exhibitions for you to check out! We hope you like the new look, all thanks to our lovely studio holder and designer
