USE THE STUDIO
The general public can access the print shop during staffed open studio hours (Thurs 4-8p, Sat 12-4p or by appointment) and through workshops.
Open studio hours are open to anyone who has taken a workshop or gone through the equivalent training and feel comfortable working independently with the equipment they wish to use. Monitors are present to provide access and answer small questions, not to teach. An open studio session (4 hours) costs $10 and includes use of the supplies and equipment listed on our facilities page.
We encourage individuals who would like to use the ICPC facilities during open studio hours to get in touch in advance: email@example.com
If you are interested in learning in a group or one-on-one setting, we offer workshops and private lessons year-round in intaglio, relief, silkscreen, letterpress, bookbinding, and beyond!
