Belfast Print Workshop

The Belfast Print Workshop, initially known as Endhouse Print Workshop, grew from the activities in the early seventies of a group of artists and printmakers who were interested in establishing a workshop in Belfast.


As a membership-focused atelier, BPW provides a fully equipped and purpose-built studio with year-round access for a capacity of 100 artists. BPW offers an extensive programme of practical courses, alongside open studios and demonstrations, designed to enhance public knowledge, understanding and appreciation of printmaking. BPW also provides opportunities for residencies, exhibitions, skills and professional advancement, to support the income, wellbeing and livelihood of its artists.



Belfast Print Workshop is a publicly funded, not for profit charitable organisation that receives lottery funding from Arts Council Northern Ireland. BPW is the longest established print workshop in the North of Ireland. In its 37 year history, the primary function is to be an arts establishment where professional printmakers can share facilities, materials and ideas with each other; to create original fine art prints using traditional, contemporary and alternative printmaking processes. They have the opportunity to sell their art work through an integrated exclusively original print gallery and online to a worldwide audience.
