Belfast Print Workshop

The oldest print workshop in Northern Ireland, Belfast Print Workshop hosts a historic collection of printing machinery and equipment which has been used by some of Ireland’s best known artists. 

The workshop started out in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s offices in Riddell House in 1977 where it was nurtured and developed, and since 2003 has occupied the top floor of the Cotton Court Building in Waring Street.

It currently has 60 professional artist members who use the facilities in the workshop to print and many of their works can be seen and bought in the Gallery which is housed on the ground floor. In addition, BPW hosts artists residencies throughout the year. 


Paperjam have been working with the Belfast Print Workshop on various projects since 2003, creating unique pieces of artwork for their Los Angeles exhibition, gallery shows, workshops events and most recently a quarterly gallery and workshop publication to promote the organisation, it’s artists and it’s events


The team at Paperjam know their stuff and throw lots of ideas and possibilities out there as well as being receptive to your ideas and steering them in the right direction. The end result just gets better and better.
