The printmaking co-op is dedicated to new developments in non-toxic printmaking. Our mission is to use processes and materials that are solvent-free. The printmaking co-op will offer one and two day workshops emphasizing intaglio methods. Membership with open studio access, internships and exhibits opportunities are available. There is a fee of $100 for 6 month membership, with a pre-requisite 2 hour workshop on non-toxic materials and procedures used in the studio. Sign up through the Maryland Hall website or at the front office during open hours. Contact Sigrid Trumpy to schedule the workshop time: firstname.lastname@example.org.
MHCA Printmaking is a small studio (400 sq’) serving as an educational workshop and experimentation center dedicated to new developments in alternatives to traditional and more toxic printmaking.
