MoPS is a small initiative run by a local artist David Farrar who together with his team delivers pop-up introductory printmaking workshops in and around Glasgow.

We are passionate about printmaking and want to make this fun and versatile art form more accessible. Our workshops introduce technical processes in relaxed environments, giving people their first step on the printmaking ladder. We are community driven and want to support schools, local businesses and community groups.

Because we get about! 
We are a small local business which runs pop-up introductory screen printing, etching, woodcut and collagraph workshops at various venues around Glasgow. We have run classes in coffee shops, retail stores, parks, schools, pubs and bars, museums, galleries and art studios all over the city and sometimes even furtehr afield. Our goal is to make printmaking accessible and give everyone a chance to have a go so we are bringing our classes to our customers wherever they are. We transport all our equipement to the venues on a bike trailer - a not always easy but rewarding task fueled by our care for the environment (and possibly the lack of driving licences within the team). On a more serious note, we do take pride in cycling and after some rough calculations we found out that by using a @carryfreedomhq bike trailer to transport our print equipment 300 miles all round Glasgow over the past 8 years, we’ve saved around 100,000g of C02 compared to driving! It’s sometimes hard to take this route especially when going up a hill with 20+ kilos of equipmnet but we’re so proud to be contributing to sustainable travel.

Mobile Print Studio (MoPS) was set up by David Farrar and Fionnuala McGowan in 2015 when they bought a few screens and a bike trailer, and pedalled as hard as they could until they got to where they are today with a fully kitted out studio. Since 2015,the studio has grown slowly but steadily and to this day we have delivered over 85 workshops all across Glasgow and surrounding areas and we have worked with some incredible small businesses, community organisations and wonderful people. Over the years, the team has changed and expanded, and while Fionnuala is no longer a part of MoPS as she embarked on an exciting journey to Athenes and then Belfast, where she is an active member of the local print community, David carries on his mission to deliver printmaking classes together with his three freelance tutors Olivia Juett, Tintin Lindkvist Nielsen and Santiago Taberna and the studio manager Romana Cerna.

Our mission is to bring prinmaking and the joy it comes with it to communities around Glasgow, especially those who would otherwise not get the opportunity to access it. We have worked with many wonderful organisations such as Milk cafe, who empower women from refugee and migrant backgrounds, Maryhill Integration Network who create a creative environment that celebrates cultural diversity in Scotland or the G20 Youth Group, who work with young people who have experienced significant life trauma and help them access safe spaces and the Arts. We love getting involved in the community and bringing joy where it’s needed. We have launched a foundraiser print sale which aims to collect funds to let us offer free classess to children and young people in the communities. The prints were designed by our talented illustrator and tutor Tintin Lindkvist Nielsen and each and every one print sold gives someone the opportunity to get their hands inky.

Our mission is to make printmaking accessible to everyone regardless of their background, skills and experience. We run workshops in a diverse range of printmaking techniques including Screenprinting, Drypoint Etching, Collagraph, Woodcut, Linocut, and Monoprint. We provide all the materials you'll need and work with you to create an edition of prints of your very own design. We’ve also recently introduced our new series Anyone Can Draw run by an illustrator Santiago Taberna where you can practice drawing in a fun and playful way.
