SLAUGHTERHAUS runs a series of studio events throughout the year - including exhibitions, artists’ talks, film nights, open studio weekends and community workshops.

Our classes, exhibition programme and associated programme of talks and film nights in 2019 take the theme of Place as a starting point.

We have invited artists to exhibit this year who are exploring this theme, and will have a series of talks and events as part of this exhibition programme. Some of our courses will also encourage participants to explore this notion of place in their work.

Date: Sunday 4th July 2021

Time: 12.00-4.00pm

SLAUGHTERHAUS Print Studio is delighted to be opening up its doors and making full use of its sunny yard this July to celebrate creativity – both virtual and real.

OpenHaus@Slaughterhaus is a chance for everyone to find out what’s been happening over the past year, with an exhibition of prints made by members and students who joined the Stockwell print studio’s online classes run during lockdown.

For everyone itching to experience life away from Zoom, there will be an afternoon of free printmaking workshops run by Slaughterhaus artists. No experience necessary. Come and have a go at monoprinting and discover a new outlet for your creativity.*

Original prints by Slaughterhaus students will be on sale. Slaughterhaus tutors will be talking about technical printmaking processes and methods. There will be information on courses for both beginners and more experienced printmakers, and options for independent use of equipment through Slaughterhaus studio membership.

Michelle Avison, co-founder of Slaughterhaus, says: “After more than a year of virtual reality, this is a refreshing opportunity to get some proper, hands-on experience of printmaking and find out how you can become part of a friendly, creative community.

OpenHaus is a great chance for people to find out what a rewarding creative process printmaking can be.

*The workshop activities will take place outside. All workshop places must be booked. (Age 16+). Numbers will be restricted for covid safety. Please contact Michelle Avison to book a place by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
