About John Howard Prints Studios


On moving to Cornwall in 1995, John was keen to find premises for a printmaking studio that would allow artists to advance their printmaking skills and provide a showcase for printmaking in Cornwall.

John Howard Print Studios opened in January 2007 at an iconic new ecobuilding at Jubilee Wharf on the Fal estuary in Penryn, Cornwall. John’s vision for the printmaking studio is of a high-quality and vibrant facility offering opportunities for new and experienced printmakers to develop their skills and expertise. The studios are recognised as a centre of printmaking excellence in Cornwall, used by artists from across the UK.

Please contact John Howard if you have any specific requirements to enable you to access the studio facilities.

The building is fully wheelchair-accessible.

The Studios

The print studio is equipped for etching, relief, monoprinting, photoetching and screen printing and offers a programme of workshops and courses together with open access studio time. Stone and plate lithography will be added to the studio’s processes in 2024.

It can accommodate up to 15 people working at any one time. The studio provides an editioning service and opportunities for display and sale of fine art prints and for demonstrating the art of printmaking to the wider public.

Jubilee Wharf

The studios are housed in Jubilee Wharf, an eco-building, designed by ZEDfactory, which aims to be responsible for its own energy demands. The location is on the river at Penryn and the studio has views along the river to the harbourside at Falmouth. The building houses a number of other creative businesses, together with a café – Muddy Beach, ideal for lunch – and Jumblies, a children’s nursery.

The building is fully wheelchair accessible.
