Reasons to join

Support

Welcome to our printmaking group! We are a community of artists and printmakers who are passionate about the art of printmaking.

Our group was founded with the goal of bringing together artists and printmakers from all backgrounds and levels of experience, to share our knowledge, skills, and ideas. We believe that printmaking is a collaborative and supportive art form, and we strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

Through our workshops, classes, and events, we offer opportunities for artists and printmakers to learn new techniques, develop their skills, and explore their creativity. We also provide access to professional printmaking equipment and facilities, so that artists can create high-quality prints that they can be proud of.

Whether you are a seasoned printmaker or just starting out, our group has something to offer. We welcome artists and printmakers of all levels and backgrounds, and we look forward to sharing our love of printmaking with you.

Join us today and become a part of our vibrant and supportive printmaking community!
