Belfast Print Workshop

The Belfast Print Workshop, initially known as Endhouse Print Workshop, grew from the activities in the early seventies of a group of artists and printmakers who were interested in establishing a workshop in Belfast.

A constitution was drawn up and an etching press purchased. Endhouse Print Workshop was taken under the financial wing of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland in 1977 and its name then changed to Belfast Print Workshop. In addition to funding the purchase of equipment and staff, the Arts Council also offered space in what was then its headquarters, Riddell Hall.

The workshop was located in the kitchen area of Riddell Hall, a former student Halls of Residence, built in 1913.

During the late 1990s the Workshop decided to look for alternative premises that would allow for expansion and development.

Belfast Print Workshop is the largest space in the North of Ireland where professional printmakers can share facilities, materials and ideas with each other. They have the opportunity to sell their prints through an integrated gallery and online to a worldwide audience.

We welcome artists keen to learn printmaking techniques either through exchange, residency or as new members.

In 2003 the workshop moved to Cotton Court, a former Bonded Warehouse, placed in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter in central Belfast.

Since the move, the Workshop has seen a busy exhibition programme, increase in new members, a new Director and Workshop Manager all of which reflect the revitalisation of Belfast Print Workshop.
