Member's Area

Any adult, over the age of 18, is welcome to become a member of bip-Art. This allows use of the studio facilities through an Open Access system and costs £48 a year, £33 for six months or £15 a day plus an hourly fee. While there is always a Supervisor on the premisis, Open Access sessions are untutored so the individual needs to be confident and safe enough to work independently.

In order to be eligible for membership, you must be proficient in the printmaking area you wish to work in.

To do this, you can take a bip-Art course. Please be aware that you may need to take more than one course before you are confident to work without tutor support. If you are already an experienced Printmaker, we offer free inductions before joining. Please contact us for more details.

*Non-attendance and Short notice cancellation of Open Access - Due to the recent number of short notice cancellations and non-attendance for booked slots for some Open Access bookings, for bookings in the Relief area, we will now charge for the hours booked, regardless of whether you attend or use them all. In the Etching and the Litho area, we charge for cancellations made with less than 72 hours (3 days) notice of the start time of the slot booked. The hours will be removed from your card. Thank you for your co-operation.*
