Member Technician Scheme

The MTS continues to be an excellent opportunity for our members who, in return for 3 hours work supporting the Technical Manager, receive keyholder membership, training, materials credit and a learning programme credit.  Many of our MTs go on to further their artistic career and apply for MA or post graduate courses or technician posts in colleges and universities.  

Here’s Elliot, member technician, who left us this year to study for his MA.

Becoming a Member Technician has widened my knowledge of each process and its equipment, and has also been a fantastic opportunity to work alongside up-and-coming and professional printmakers using a wide variety of styles and techniques.
