We believe that in meaningful creative work there is real therapy for all. The Print Studio produces high quality screen printed textile products for selling/ donating.

We work in a fully equipped, beautiful screen printing studio surrounded by countryside and with fantastic views over Edinburgh. We use high quality materials and use ethical, organic fabrics and materials where we can.

A key part of the role will be working with a young man with autism and complex needs.

Artistic skill and an understanding of the explorative development process that goes into good design is essential, a higher education qualification in a visually creative subject preferable.
