As part of the 2016 Ceredigion Art Trail Aberystwyth Printmakers held its inaugural Summer Jamboree, which included workshops, artists talks and an exhibition. In August 2017 we will be holding our second Summer Jamboree. There will be five two day workshops, two exhibitions and artists talks. For more information keep an eye on this website, follow us on Facebook or email.
Aberystwyth Printmakers was established in 2004 by a group of artists who employ a range of printmaking techniques in their work, including etching, lithography, screenprinting, wood engraving, woodcut and linocut. In 2014 Aberystwyth Printmakers Ltd was incorporated when our new Print Workshop was established at Old College. The principle aim of the group, which currently has around sixty members, is the promotion of printmaking in Mid and West Wales, and this occurs through regular meetings, talks, lectures, workshop demonstrations and exhibitions of members work. In recent years the group has exhibited widely throughout Wales, England and Scotland and further afield in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and China.

The Print Workshop at Old College has good facilities for etching, relief printing and lithography and limited capacity for screen printing as well. Since 2014 the workshop has been able to provide supervised and open workshop sessions for all registered members. The group has also run introductory workshops and classes on many techniques and these can be booked by both members and non-members.
