Zea Mays Printmaking is a studio, workshop, gallery, educational facility and research center dedicated to the safest and most sustainable printmaking practices available. We are continually researching exciting new techniques and products. We share this information through our workshops, consultations and private tutorials.
We offer workshops in safer printmaking processes; access to our state-of-the-art studio; exhibitions; residencies; prints for sale and more.
