Intaglio (Etching) & Relief

The main printmaking studio has three intaglio presses, (and yes, you can use these same presses to print your relief prints!). We welcome all styles of printmaking: woodcut, linocut, etching, Solarplate™, drypoint, monoprint, collagraph, mezzotint, aquatint, etc.

Printmakers have access to a dedicated etching room set up for copper plate etching with horizontal ferric chloride baths. Use our in-house hard ground or bring your own. (Sorry, no nitric acid for zinc plates).


Shared Press Access $5 per daily use.
Printmaking members can use our intaglio presses during member hours with shared, community, press use. Rags, tarlatan, and non-toxic cleaners included.



Do you need private access to an intaglio press to print an edition? We can accommodate you. Contact our printmaking director for details and rates.
