Printmaking

Radius Studio offers a complete studio for printmakers in need of a place to create or print monotypes, wood and linoleum cut prints, waterless lithography (aluminum plate), and screen prints.

Our printing press is a Whelan Xpress, capable of pulling professional prints on its 22 x 50 inch bed (monotype, intaglio, collograph, relief). For those interested in screen printing, we also have a 4 color printing press for printing T shirts, posters, and more. We have a dark room for burning screens, a light table, inking tables, drying racks, worktables, paper storage and basic inks and tools. Most of these things are available for use by students and monthly partners as well as open studio partners. For safety and environmental concerns, we no longer have acid baths for etching, and we are slowly transitioning to using all soy based inks and other non toxic printing materials.

Additionally, we offer a selection of general studio tools handy for all media such as a large paper cutter, tear bar, studio lights, etc. The press is available during open studio hours on a first-come, first serve basis and can be reserved in advance for edition purposes.
