We are continually researching exciting new techniques and products. We share this information through our workshops, consultations and private tutorials.

Detailed research conducted by our interns into a variety of new printmaking products and methods.
1-12 week residencies with on-site accommodations. Access to all of our state-of-the-art "green" printmaking facilities. Private or community studio. Applications reviewed on a rolling basis.
We offer unpaid internships to college students pursuing a degree in printmaking, recent college graduates or to those who have completed a non-academic course of study in printmaking.
A group of artist members from Zea Mays Printmaking began an investigation into the health impacts of the printing plates we use. Substratum is a documentation of our investigation and hopefully a useful resource for other artist/printmakers and DIY practitioners.
