About Peacock

Since 1974, Peacock - a workshop for art (previously Peacock Printmakers & Peacock Visual Arts) has supported thousands of artists in the production of artworks, ranging from prints to video works, photography, performance and site-specific public installations. At its core lies the idea of the multiple - work that can be reproduced in a variety of formats, analogue and digital, reconfiguring the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the audience, which can be outlined simply as making, learning and showing. Our organisation is supported by Aberdeen City Council and Creative Scotland.

Peacock’s role in the city of Aberdeen, through its printmaking workshops and the gallery/project space the worm, has been to activate spaces where artists and citizens are, prompted by artworks to congregate around ideas and practices that interrupt everyday routines. Our making facilities include a screen printing studio and relief printing studio as well as a laser cutter and vinyl cutter.

In our online print shop, we have a wide range of contemporary art prints for sale by local, regional and international artists, many of which have been published and editioned at Peacock - a workshop for art.

Our open access workshop is based just off the Castlegate, with a sign above the close. Our project space and gallery is on the Castlegate and is called the worm.
