ABOUT US

WHO ARE WE?

De Grafische Werkplaats Den Haag (The Graphic Workshop, the Hague) is a production workshop for visual artists, graphic artists, photographers and designers. The Werkplaats is known for being one of the few places in the Netherlands with facilities for large format screen printing, lithography, etching, relief printing and textile printing.

The Werkplaats is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 to 17:00. Artists wanting to work independently can come to the Werkplaats on Mondays. A professional supervisor will provide technical and practical advice on the other two days. It is also possible to work at the Werkplaats on an alternative day or time by appointment. If you are new to the Werkplaats, you first have to follow an introduction day or course.

De Grafische Werkplaats offers the opportunity for independently creating unique and small-scale graphic products and is expressly not intended for industrial production.

Exhibitions

The Werkplaats regularly organises exhibitions and takes part in the Hague’s gallery route HOOGTIJ, design Week, Festival Design Kwartier. We are enthusiastic participants in other initiatives and festivals such as Haagse Makers, Open Atelierdagen Centrum (Open Studio Days in the Centre, oktober), Maand van de Grafiek (The Graphic Month, oktober), Festival de Betovering (The Enchantment Festival in the autumn holidays) de Ooievaarspasfestival (discount days for card holders) in September.

Stichting Grafische Werkplaats

The Stichting de Grafische Werkplaats (The Graphic Workshop Foundation) was founded in 1974. Since then, many professionals have found their way to our facilities. It is where many recently graduated artists have produced their first editions.

The Werkplaats supervisors themselves are active as artists, graphic artist or designers. Together they have a pool of knowledge of the techniques and apparatus used in the Werkplaats. If you need help and advice in one of these areas, please contact us in advance. We can then indicate what time, and which supervisor, would be best to provide you with information.
