Gravity Press Experimental Print Studio is a fine art printmaking workshop specializing in the creation of unique prints by established and emerging artists. The workshop will begin at 10 am each morning with a 2-3 hour demonstration by master printmaker Brandon Graving, followed by individual time with the instructor and open studio until 10 pm. You will receive personalized technical assistance to help create and expand your artistic vision.

Innovative equipment allows for embossing and extreme-viscosity techniques that are not possible on more traditional equipment. Start by working small as you explore new exciting printmaking methods and materials. You will also have the opportunity to work very large or choose to work collaboratively with your group. Open your mind and explore the limitless possibilities in this supportive and non- threatening environment.
