History

  1. West Yorkshire Print Workshop is a registered charity (1010125) and was founded in 1981 as the Kirklees Arts Space Society. It opened to the public as a gallery space in 1984. In 1995 it became Eastthorpe Visual Arts and adopted its present name, West Yorkshire Print Workshop (WYPW) in 2004. It is a Regularly Funded Organisation of the Arts Council England, Yorkshire. WYPW is based in the former Victorian Church School adjacent to St Paul's Church and is situated in Mirfield town centre.

    WYPW exists to support artists and creative businesses. It achieves this through the provision of open access printmaking facilities, affordable studio spaces, exhibiting opportunities for members and specialist printmaking workshops and courses. WYPW also runs a regular programme of general art courses which utilise the skills and specialisms of our studio holders.
