The good news is that you don't have to be a member to use Inkspot. There are no membership fees just a session fee of £20.00 each time that you come. (sessions are roughly three hours long). There is a day rate of £35.00.

You will have access to the studio during opening times and can book in during the day and some evenings and Saturdays.

Opening times:

Tuesday to Thursday 10am - 6pm.

Saturdays: Usually the second and third Saturday of every month (we work around some Saturday and weekend courses)

Session times for silkscreen printing:

  • Morning: 10am to 1pm
  • Afternoon: 2pm to 5pm
  • Saturdays: 11am-5pm

Since letterpress takes so much longer to set up and you may be composing for a very long time before you can print, we charge £25.00 for a day in the workshop. If you have a letterpress project which may take several days to complete we can negotiate a project price. 

All we need to know is that you know how to use the machinery safely. This may mean that you need to do a course or a one to one induction to make sure that you know how to use our equipment. 

If you feel you need assistance, or are a bit rusty, you can book a process induction with one of the staff. These are designed to give you the confidence to use the studio and its equipment safely and productively.

The cost is £45 the induction lasts 3 hours and includes all basic materials and assistance. You will actually make a two colour print on the induction.

If you would like more tuition or to learn something new you could join one of our many courses.

Beginners and those who need to learn a new process but don't want to do a course may want to book 1:1 tuition in either screenprinting, letterpress, photoshop or illustrator. Individual tuition is charged at £30.00 per hour.
