Directions to Our Studio
The studio is located at Wirksworth Stables in Bellerive and can be found by turning off the Howrah main road into Wentworth Street alongside Clarence High School. On the corner of Wentworth Street and South Street you will find Wirksworth House and the entrance to the studio is via the double gates in South street which have a HIP sign.
Equipment, Bookings and Availability
The studio is usually staffed on Monday’s and Tuesday’s between 10am – 3pm but qualified members can make arrangements to use the facilities at other times by contacting the workshop manager (currently John Ingleton). There is a small etching press set up in the upper level of the stables building and, from late April 2010, a large etching press and litho press in the weatherboard annex. There are no facilities for etching etc but if you wish to do some printing you will need to show that you are competent to use the machinery and to bring all your own equipment – paper, ink, etc
