    Highland Print Studio is an open access workshop with facilities for printmaking (intaglio, relief, sceenprinting and stone lithography) and digital imaging.

    Anyone from professional artist to complete beginner can learn to use our facilities. Simply take a class in the technique you want to learn and on successful completion, you can then continue using that area to continue creating your own work.

    Experienced printmakers with relevant recent experience may only need to undertake a 1 hour induction.

    Highland Print Studio stocks a range of original prints. Each print is a hand-made original work of art that is made using one or more traditional printmaking technique and is signed and numbered by the artist. View our gallery online.
