Cardiff Print Workshop

Cardiff Print Workshop is an open access printmaking workshop run by artists, for artists. We run various art classes and printmaking courses for our members and the public.

We at CPW want Artists/ Printmakers to develop their own technical skills and artistic practices whilst also exhibiting and promoting their work as part of the group. CPW is a valuable resource for artists and graduates who otherwise may be unable to continue printmaking.


Cardiff Print Workshop was first set up with ‘AADW’ (Artists and Designers in Wales) in 1979 at its original site on Tyndall Street, Cardiff Bay, where it stayed until 1990. Due to the Cardiff Bay Development Project however the workshop was forced to move to the Howardian Adult Education Centre in 1991. In December 2011 CPW expanded and began renting an additional space from Chapter Arts Centre in Market House. The Howardian Adult Education Centre has now closed and it is here that we continue to run classes and printmaking masterclasses to the public and CPW members.

We are proud to be an integral part of Chapter Arts Centre’s forthcoming development of a Cultural Quarter which should see us installed in brand new premises sometime within the next few years. Until then much of our equipment and in particular our stone lithography facility will be in storage.
