Hire my Studio for your Screen Printing Projects
My studio is available to hire, giving you access to a professional screen printing studio in Kendal, Cumbria – only 10 minutes from junction 36 of the M6. Hire includes full use of all facilities including two large print beds, a Riley Hopkins Jr. 4 Colour, 2 Station Press (for T-shirts and Totes, etc.), a massive integrated exposure unit, a huge drying cabinet with light box, and a wash-out room. There’s even a lush sound system complete with 2.2m cinema screen and projector you can use. You’re welcome to bring along your own vinyl records or MP3 player. And if you fancy a bit of ping pong during breaks, I have a table tennis table too – game on!

Contact Ben to book your date
Screens, chemicals, squeegees, test paper and full use of the facilities are included. Purchase ink, emulsion, film separations and paper on the day. Bring your digital artwork files with you and I’ll run the films out with you then – or pre-order through the website here.
Please note that if you wish to hire the studio, you must complete an induction so that I can assess your ability to work safely and independently. Inductions take place at the beginning of your first session and last for about an hour. We’ll discuss the studio equipment and Health and Safety regulations, then you’ll be free to print. If it becomes apparent that you need a refresher, you’ll be required to attend one of my workshops before being eligible to hire the facilities.
