We are seeking a Workshop Assistant to work with us on Saturdays. This is a new role, created in response to changing staff patterns and provides an exciting opportunity to create a new one year post in our lively open access printmaking studio.

Today we have over 250 members using our Open Access Studio which is kitted out with state of the art printmaking equipment and facilities in etching, screenprinting, relief printing, laser cutting and digital printing.
We are looking for a friendly and knowledgeable person, with good, recent experience in a variety of printmaking processes, an understanding of open access workshops and good communication skills to join our team.
