We are Hiring: Saturday Workshop Assistant

Closing date: 2pm, 17 August 2022 

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.


Founded in 1972 Glasgow Print Studio was established as an artist led studio to provide facilities and support to artists working in printmaking. 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. The focus of this post is not printing editions but rather to support members on a day-to-day level with basic technical queries, maintaining equipment and leading inductions for joining members.


Full training will be provided.

Salary: £73.50 per day/£10.50 per hour (one day per week 10am-6pm with one hour unpaid lunch break). This post is funded for one year.

Current Exhibitions:





Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Painting & Printing, 1990-2004

Exhibition runs: 05 August - 01 October 2022
Glasgow Print Studio First Floor Gallery

Glasgow Print Studio is delighted to present an exhibition of work by the late Wilhelmina Barns-Graham.


Barns-Graham was first and foremost a painter, but she made prints throughout her working life, trying many different methods such as etching, linocut, lithography and screenprinting.  All her published prints were made in collaboration with master printmakers. Their technical expertise was essential, enabling her to translate her way of working into a different medium.


View the exhibition online here.


Exhibition open 10am - 5.30pm Tuesday - Saturday. Entry is free.

Featured Artist: Lin Chau

Exhibition Runs: 05 - 27 August 2022

Glasgow Print Studio Ground Floor Gallery

Moving Landscapes

Over the years, Lin Chau's encounters of landscapes in nature have inspired her works. The works in Moving Landscapes are a direct response to Lin’s visual experiences of natural sites in the UK and Scotland, in particular, which she visited due to the pandemic restrictions on international travel.

Exhibition open 10am - 5.30pm Tuesday - Saturday. Entry is free.

Eileen Cooper: Monotypes & Editions

05 - August - 01 October 2022

Glasgow Print Studio Ground Floor Gallery

Cooper's prints are steeped in a distinctive expressionism; her highly personal style always reflects stages in her own life that readily associate with archetypal themes and mythologies. A playful spirit pervades the work, and her figures are depicted with a linear vibrancy and a luminosity that is explosive in its aliveness, passion and tenderness.

This spotlight presentation draws particular attention to unique works that perfectly illustrate her aesthetic.

Open 10am - 5.30pm Tuesday - Saturday. Entry is free.
