We have just changed our membership structure
Please have a look at the different types to see which is best for you
Swansea Print Workshop is not publicly funded and membership fees are our main – and vital – source of income. Without these, we could not continue and we are grateful for your support. We will keep you up to date on all our activities through newsletters and mailshots and you can choose to be involved in the running of the workshop.
We now offer four levels of annual membership:
Friends of Swansea Print Workshop
This is an opportunity to stay in touch with our exhibitions/ workshops/ talks/ Print Sales even if you are not actively involved in printmaking and drawing. You will also help to support the running of the workshop and support for our outreach work.
Ordinary Membershipis our ‘value’ membership. This is an ideal membership for occasional users, those new to printmaking, leisure artists who enjoy taking part in workshops.The benefits include access to the Studio for independent use, eligibility to exhibit in our Annual Member’s exhibition, discounted fees for workshop and eligibility to display browser prints in our Art Shop.
Full Membershipoffers considerable benefits and is ideal for the more frequent user and those who want more opportunities to exhibit their work.
Benefits include reduced fees for Open Access studio time and for workshops, increased opportunities to exhibit work in exhibitions organized by the Exhibitions Group; work and artist profile featured on SPW’s website gallery and access to sell work on-line and in our Art Shop.
Keyholder Membershipis the most flexible membership available at Swansea Print Workshop. This is open only to experienced printmakers and is ideal for those who have work and family commitments which make it difficult to attend the Workshop during the normal Open Access times.
Keyholder Members benefit not only from 24/7 access to the Studio facilities but they also pay a reduced fee for Open Access and have greater opportunities to exhibit through Swansea Print Workshop.
Keyholder members are eligible to exhibit for free in SPW’s gallery space each year in a solo or group exhibition (with other Keyholder members). Please contact us with any proposals.
