The Studio is open for residency applications. Applicants will need to submit a CV and a link to their portfolio/website/social media and will be considered based on what they would like to achieve in the studio.


Linden Print Studio is a well-equipped, open-access studio in North Cumbria, situated in a rural hamlet on the Solway Plain, 6 miles west of the historic and easily accessible city of Carlisle. The Solway estuary and the Northern fells of the Lake District are much quieter than the south of the Cumbria and great for research visits. Hadrian’s Wall, the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway are also within easy reach.


Vega, who runs the studio, can provide tours and itineraries of the Lake District and Borders as well as connecting residency holders with arts events and artists in the county.
