People hard at work in the studio

New name, new website

When we set up SLAUGHTERHAUS Print Studio in 2010, we named it after the building. Redesigning our website in 2024 was also the perfect time to launch our new name, HAUSPRINT.

How we present ourselves and the work we do with our local and wider communities is important to us and we believe that the time is right for a refresh.

HAUSPRINT is a place of community, sharing and learning. We first used this name in lockdown to describe our online and community outreach courses in a difficult time.

We provide a welcoming place for printing, for meeting artists and printmakers and for finding out about the joys of creativity through making. Welcome to the new HAUS!
