 Welcome to all things printmaking.

We have art classes and free information for many types of printmaking.

All of these types of printing processes can be done without a press and in a home studio, aka “the kitchen table.”

We focus on on making marks, textures, patterns and layered images with found tools, stamps and stencils.


It is a great way to make some wonderful art with out needing to draw a lot. The more you explore and print, the more your skills will develop.

Printmaking is a way to maximize the drawing skills that you do have, by converting a sketch or drawing into a printing plate, stencil or stamp.
