Open Studio 

Artists are be able to rent studio time at Cat Head Press. Artists must take a workshop to be certified to use particular equipment and spaces in the print shop for open studio hours. Experienced printmakers may bypass the workshops for certification, but will have to set up an individual appointment to demonstrate proficiency and knowledge in the area they would like to utilize.

Equipment and space for open studio time will include:

  • Screen printing area and access to screens, exposure unit, emulsion, ink (limited), printing tables, and printer for stencils
  • Lithography presses and equipment, space for processing plates, access to chemicals for lithography, and ink.
  • Etching press for intaglio, monotype and relief printmaking. Access to inks and inking area

Open studio times will occur during open hours whenever a workshop is not taking place. Email if you are interested in setting up an appointment to be certified to use the printshop.
