The Tower St Print Project is run by Oyster Community Press CIC, a Community Interest Arts Organisation and delivers printmaking workshops at its new dedicated space in Ipswich. Their studio is in the Tower House at 17 Tower Street, opposite St Mary Le Tower Church, beside the Tower Ramparts bus station.
At the Tower Street studio, both beginners and those with some experience can find out about different printmaking techniques, under the guidance of an experienced and friendly team, who will make them feel at ease. Choose from one day Introduction to Printmaking workshops, half day 'Have a Go' sessions on Saturday mornings, Weekend Bootcamp to boost your creativity or longer courses in linocutting and Drypoint etching. They also offer Arty Party's, team-building days for volunteers and staff and portfolio development days for students preparing for GSEs, A Levels and University entrance. Tower St Print Project is a recognised centre for delivering Arts Awards up to Silver level from the Arts Council.
