Why we exist

It’s simple. We love print. 

We believe being creative makes you feel good. 

We love the magic of print, experiments, sharing, collaborating.

We want to make a difference.

That is why we provide an open access printmaking studio with fantastic resources, courses, workshops and our printmaking family includes master printmakers, multidisciplinary artists, amateurs and those who print to improve their well-being. 

We love to hear from you so please get in touch.

Our Story

Seacourt Print Workshop was founded in 1981 by Margaret Arthur and Jean Duncan. They wanted to be able to practice printmaking close to home and starting small, they established a print workshop. To help pay for overheads and purchase equipment they delivered courses to local people, then schools and the membership started to grow.

Seacourt has never been afraid to change and develop and 38 years later we have 80 members, we cater for almost every print technique and have a reputation as a welcoming print family. 

We hope 2020 will see a move to a landmark building in Bangor town centre so that we can continue to provide access to creativity and help support the regeneration of the town. 

We wouldn’t be able to do all this without the support of our funders and sponsors, our creative community and of course without you. To find out how you can help us develop this journey further, visit our support us page

With Heart and Hand

In spring 2021, Northern Ireland Screen’s Digital Film Archive commissioned six artists from Seacourt Print Workshop in Bangor to make a creative response to With Heart and Hand, a UTV programme made in 1966 to commemorate the Battle of the Somme.

Seacourt is moving!

Seacourt Print Workshop is moving again, for what will hopefully be the last time. We have been busy packing up our workshop, uncovering lots of historic artefacts and reminiscing about how far Seacourt has come over the past 40 years.
