Double Elephant Print Workshop: Print on Prescription

Print on Prescription  at Double Elephant Print Workshop makes printmaking accessible to adults dealing with mental health issues.

Name of Organisation:

Double Elephant Print Workshop


Title of project/programme:

Print on Prescription


Dates of project/programme:

January – December 2011


Two weekly printing sessions at the Double Elephant Print studio in Exeter enable two groups of participants (those new to print and those who want to continue to print on a long-term basis) to access a professional printmaking workshop to create their own work (screenprint, etching, drypoint, relief print) at their own pace.

Participants can either self refer with a signature from their GP or be referred to the programme by Occupational Therapists, GPs, or Mental Health Support Workers. Participants are referred for 10 weeks at a time and the afternoon sessions are on a drop-in basis for the long-term participants.

Double Elephant is a community printmaking resource and this project ensures the wider community can access this resource on an ongoing basis. Their portable print workshop and press enables them to take printmaking into hospital and community centre environments too.
