We will be having the first of our drop-in printmaking sessions on Sunday April 2. These sessions are intended to give an introductory taste of printmaking. It might be your first attempt at anything artistic or perhaps you are a talented artist looking into a new medium, or even just something to do on a rainy afternoon... Whatever the reason, we are sure you will enjoy this activity.
The sessions last around 45 minutes to 1 hour, and are a demonstration with hands-on participation. Our resident printmaker, Alisa Vernon, with demonstrate the process. You will get to have a go with the tools, ink a plate of your choice and take the print you make away. Each session is $15 per person, no need to book, with up to six participants in each session. Larger groups can be accommodated with a little planning*.
During spring we will be offering the sessions on Saturdays & Sundays and will be demonstrating linocut printmaking. In summer we will add sessions on Friday that will demonstrate drypoint printmaking. There will be three sessions each day starting at 1pm, 2.15pm and 3.30pm.

Saturdays & Sundays: Start times, 1pm, 2.15pm & 3.30pm
Drop-in Drypoint Printmaking Sessions: July through August

Autumn Printmaking Classes: September though November

Once you have seen how great printmaking is we are sure you are going to want to learn more, so we are busily organizing a program of classes for autumn, which will explore different techniques.
We are still waiting on some work to arrive prior to our April 1 Grand Opening, but we think we are looking pretty good. Any one who has been passing will see that we have been open, as a soft opening to get everything running smoothly for April, and in fact we participated in the Savor Cannon Beach festival hosting the Youngberg Hill winery.
April 1st is our big opening, and we hope you will come and celebrate with us. We have activities all day (schedule below) and hope you will come in and see us. Our resident printmaker, and studio manager, Alisa Vernon has created a lovely open edition linocut print, which will be gifted to our visitors throughout the day.
