Open Studio Hours at Flatbed
Scheduled Saturdays from 9am to 4pm
Flatbed is excited to announce Open Studio Hours on scheduled Saturdays, once to twice a month, from 9am to 4pm. Check below to see available Saturdays, read more about the Open Studio program, and learn how to register!
Registration fee: $150/day. 4 renters/day max.
More dates to be announced closer to the summer.
Eligibility and Requirements: Press renters must have experience through workshops at Flatbed or have had extensive recent printmaking experience. All renters should contact coordinator Annalise Gratovich through the 'Inquire' button for an online portfolio review or to discuss applicable experience. There will be a shop assistant on hand to facilitate safety and press set up but Flatbed printers are not available for instruction as this is a self-directed open studio time. Our goal is to provide space for printmakers to work individually in a safe, focused, fun, and inspiring environment.
Materials: While Open Studio renters will supply the majority of their supplies, Flatbed will provide some essentials.
Renters will bring:
Plates (copper, wood, linoleum, plexi, etc)
Grounds, varnishes and brushes
Flatbed will provide:
Presses: Takach and American French Tool (no electric presses will be available)
Paper towels and rags
Ferric chloride acid baths
May have designated rollers and brayers for use but Flatbed professional equipment will not be available
To apply for registration or for questions, please contact Annalise through the 'Inquire' button, at email@example.com, or 512-477-9328 (ext.2) to discuss eligibility and printmaking experience.
