Using the workshop

Any artist can use the studio to make their own prints by simply becoming a member ($35 annual membership fee) and purchasing hours.  All of our studio use fees are designed based on the realities of a working artist.  We offer flexi-passes that let you chose when you use your hours as well as unlimited use blocks by the month or year.  Artists that have no previous printmaking experience will need to enroll in a printmaking course prior to purchasing hours to familiarize yourself with basic techniques and the studio.  We have a staff of monitors to provide basic assistance in the studio and help you settle into our community workspace. Visitors are welcome during our open hours so come by and check out the shop.
