Newcastle Printmakers Workshop was established over 30 years ago and provides facilities for the community to learn about printmaking as well as being home for around 80 enthusiastic artists.
The workshop building was constructed in approx 1965 and members are required to maintain it, receiving no government or council support.
The open day is being held in order to raise awareness of the facilities the workshop provides and to raise funds for essential repairs,
