Leicester Print Workshop is the centre for fine art printmaking in the Midlands. From its Leicester city base it promotes and sustains printmaking as a contemporary visual artform - as a craft, as a focus for exhibitions and commissions, in schools, with community groups, to artists and to the general public. Its studio is well equipped and staffed by a team of experts and it is open for use by practising printmakers.
Leicester Print Workshop also works in partnership with venues, artists and organisations to ensure fine art printmaking is practised, enjoyed and better understood by artists, students and audiences.
Our Big Movie
Leicester Print Workshop has a great opportunity to create a new arts flagship, a thriving centre for printmaking, in the heart of Leicester.
We're currently fundraising for the remaining £24,800 we need to move to larger, better equipped facilities later in 2015. Read more about Our Big Move fundraising campaign here: www.lpw-ourbigmove.tumblr.com
Our Big Movie was made by students from the BA Photography and Video course at Leicester's De Montfort University. Big thanks to Glenn Mallard, Henna lakhani, Ryan Oliver and Michaela Mullin for supporting Our Big Move! Music and narration by Lewis Gwinnell.
