If you have some previous experience of printmaking and can demonstrate a good working knowledge of the technique you wish to practice, you can join up today. To get started you will need to get in touch to arrange your induction.

Inductions
All new and renewing members need to have an induction session. Please contact us to arrange this once you have purchased your membership. Inductions are usually at the start of your first print session, and includes an orientation of the building and print rooms, general membership protocol, health and safety, and safe use of the print rooms and specific machinery. Induction sessions are not teaching, and it is expected that members already have a good working knowledge of the process they wish to use. If you do not have experience of printmaking but would like to learn, you can attend one of our courses: www.wypw.org/course-bookings
