Drop–In Printmaking

Printmakers are welcome to join the Drop – In Painters on available Mondays between 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (see dates below).

The printing press is housed in our storage room. Please follow these guidelines:

  • For each drop-in session, choose two qualified “leaders”, who are designated to be in charge of the printing press and have experience in how to handle all equipment. The leaders are responsible for the printing press set-up and return of all equipment to the storage room.

  • In advance of each session, the leaders need to inform the contact person of the planned drop-in date and the names of the leaders:

Contact Person: Rose Robertson – rose.robertson@sympatico.ca

  • Maximum of 5 printmakers for each Monday session

  • Printmakers share the room with regular drop-in painters. The space at the front of the room near the sink would be the area reserved for the printing press equipment.

The cost is $10, for whatever length of time you choose to stay.

  1. Print your name on the Sign-In Sheet on the front bulletin board

  2. Place your $10 in the envelope.

  3. The last person to leave should slide the money envelope under the door of the storage room.
