PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A LAB, NOT A CLASS - PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH A PRINTING PRESS, EITHER HERE AT 1450 OCEAN OR ELSEWHERE IS REQUIRED.

Through December 2016, 1450 Ocean is featuring our 30"x48" Dickerson Combination motorized printing press, available on weekends in a lab-type setting. Printmakers with some experience are invited to sign up for printing time; bring your blocks or everything you need to work on them here; monotype, linocut, and other similar techniques will be accommodated. Paper will be available for purchase; shared black water soluble ink, inking surfaces, rollers and brayers will be available. These sessions are great for folks who have taken our printmaking classes in the past, or have learned elsewhere and want to practice their skills. We're partnering with local expert printers who will rotate in an advising capacity. Check our website for updates. All day parking at the Civic Auditorium lot on Main a few blocks south - $5.

Parking is around the corner at Structure 6 on 2nd, $1 for 2.5 hours.
