Open Studio

Bring your plates and stencils!

Open Studio days provide print artists and previous SNAP students the opportunity to access the Printshop on a drop in basis for only $25 (including a general supply fee). There will be a knowledgable technician available during these times to assist you with press operation and any other technical questions and troubleshooting.

Open Studios are back!


Open Studios are generally once a month, or the 3rd Saturday of the month. We are slowly easing into an Open Studio schedule after a long hiatus due to Covid-19, so dates are subject to change as we settle into the new schedule! 

Next announced Open Studio dates in 2023:

September 16 (During letterpress workshop)
October 21
November 18 (During letterpress workshop)
December 16 

Please reach out to Myken at [email protected] with any questions or feedback!
