If you have little to no experience in printmaking – whether it’s screen printing, reduction, or monotype – this is a great opportunity to gain one-on-one instruction at the Oolite Printshop.
During this 2 hour session, you will identify the introductory technique you would like to focus on, and your private class session will be catered exclusively to learning this practice. After this private workshop, you will become authorized to book reservations during Open Studio Hours at the Oolite Printshop by contacting [email protected]
Your private printmaking training will include:
– Introduction to the necessary tools and equipment related to your chosen practice
– Access to all materials including emulsion, inks, student-grade paper, and screens
– A walk-through of your process from the design stage through the printing stage.
– Personalized attention and troubleshooting help along the way
– A completed print-run (1-color) by the end of your session.
– Authorization to return and use the Oolite Printshop during future Open Studio Hours.
As per the current safety protocol, you will be required to wear a mask throughout your training session and maintain 6 ft of social distance. You will also be asked to wipe down any communal equipment that you use during your session.
