The Swansea Print Workshop Team consists of project staff, freelance artists and a large team of volunteers whose invaluable support enables the organisation to deliver the wide-range of activities and projects every year.
Each project that we deliver requires a specific team of staff. These are therefore, recruited on a project by project basis but may consist of: Project Coordinator, Marketing Officer, Administrative Assistant, Events Assistant, Technician.
A Project Director is responsible for the strategic direction and management of the project and other volunteers support the team in a variety of ways. Opportunities for both paid and volunteer staff will be advertised on the website, details of the current project team can be found on our Current Project pages.
Swansea Print Workshop has proven experience in delivering successful and enjoyable workshops as part of our Outreach Programme. Our workshop leaders and assistants have many years of experience in printmaking and teaching to schools, higher education institutions and community groups.
