About us

CATO PRESS is a Printmaking Studio and collective of artists in East Bristol, committed to offering professional and low-cost  printmaking facilities, and supporting the design and production of hand-made posters for causes we support.

Like all brilliant ideas the studio was founded in the dark back room of a well-respected drinking establishment. 

We are a mixture of makers, designers, painters, parents, illustrators, teachers, and blaggers, drawn together by the wonderful art of Printmaking. The studio is used and supported by members who pay a monthly fee – see our membership page for details. If you are interested in being part of the space, drop us an email and come and say hello! We have facilities for Relief, Etching, photopolymer, and run regular courses. We are also open to ideas for events, residencies, exhibitions and projects
