OMG. I just discovered Malaspina Printmakers. These people are so sexy.
Essentially, they’re an artistic society based in Vancouver that focuses on the various elements of printmaking. They have all of the equipment and run workshops for a variety of print-related techniques:
…intaglio, aquatint, lithoplate, monotypes, etching, lithography, collography, inkjet [looks like some prepress and paper info], silkscreening, woodcut [!!!], intaglio photopolymer…
I don’t even know what half this stuff is, but it sounds very alluring. Next time I am feeling flush with cash I am totally rocking down and taking one of these. AND they have exhibits! I can’t wait to immerse myself in some awesome print art.
