Open Studio Program

*The following is only an outlook of what prices will look like for the available terms. For questions or concerns , please contact Marie Oberkirsch via email.

Our classroom space is available for open studio use for individually driven printmaking projects by appointment. We have hand tools and equipment, but participants need to bring their own supplies. To qualify for use of the press, participants must purchase an Open Studio License. Requirements for said license will ask that participants must complete at least one Central Print Class and pass a qualifying exam annually to prove competency and safety in using the equipment. Programs such as Open Studio help Central Print fulfill its mission to preserve and promote the craft of letterpress printmaking through use of vintage type and presses.

Studio times are by appointment only on certain days and hours. See below for details on appointment hours and costs of certain license term periods.
