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).


Shop Fee with Shared Press Use $5 full-day session.
With this option, you can print for 15 hours (9am-midnight), with shared press use!

Private Press Reservation$5/hour.
Need to edition and don’t want to share a press? Reserve any of our three presses for private use and have it all to yourself!
