Covid-19 Updates

Northern Print's GalleryCovid-19 Update 1 December 2020

In line with the latest government guidelines for Tier 3, we are permitted to open our shop (with Covid-19 precautions in place*) and also our studio which is a place of work for professional artists. As galleries are not permitted to open we are however postponing the official opening of our Seiko Tachibana exhibition for viewing although you can view the work online here and if you are interested in making a purchase you can arrange to view the prints in person by appointment by contacting us at enquiry@northernprint.org.uk. You can also view the collection of prints in our windows for the Small Pleasures project and you can purchase those prints online here.

Shop 

You can still shop online and arrange click and collect or postal deliveries of artwork, materials, papers etc. We of course value all sales at the current time so do please tell everyone you can!

Wed 2 Dec
Thurs 3 Dec

Please note that our final day of business before our Christmas break will be Sat 19 Dec and we will be unable to fulfil orders after this day.

* When visiting our shop we request that you please wear face coverings, use the hand sanitiser provided and maintain a 2m distance from other customers. We will be limiting the amount of customers we admit at one time so please be aware that you may be asked to wait for a short while until it is safe for you to enter the building.

Studio open

Based on the current guidance we understand that the studio can remain open for studio users as this is considered a work space for professional artists. We are also acutely aware that making work in the run up to Christmas is really important for so many of you. We will continue to operate the studio with Covid measures in place and an online booking system - see attached info on how to book sessions and buy materials. We have reduced the sessions available but spread these out over different days of the week throughout the month and ask you to book as soon as you can. Importantly please let us know if you are not able to attend a session you have booked as staff will only be in work to support studio users access. Staff will be on flexible furlough throughout this period.

The days we will open the studio during the lockdown are:

Tuesday 1st
Wed 2 Dec
Thurs 3 Dec
Thurs 10 Dec
Fri 11 Dec
Sat 12 Dec
