Check our Upcoming Classes page for current printmaking classes.
The Folk School’s printmaking classes take place in the basement of Cabin 66 in Pioneer Park, in our Print Shop. The shop is a growing facility, currently equipped for relief printing, monoprints, collagraphs, and printing etchings that have been made elsewhere. We are working toward adding more equipment for additional processes.
Students who have taken a Folk School printmaking class have access to a low cost facilitated open studio night once or twice a month, where they can build the skills they have learned in workshops. These Print Shop Open Studio nights are designed as a bridge to build confidence with the goal of artists being able to use the Print Shop independently.
The Print Shop is also available to more experienced printmakers (experience can be either through the Folk School or elsewhere) to work on an independent basis. We offer daily, monthly, or yearly memberships, and the space is open for use anytime the building does not have other scheduled activities. This access requires a meeting and a Print Shop orientation. If you are interested in this option, please email email@example.com.
We are actively looking for additional instructors. If you are a printmaker who has skills to share, please get in touch!
