This two-day workshop will acquaint you with proper press procedures including press set up, plate-making, inking, proofing, and clean-up. Several print-making processes will be demonstrated for you to create your own works.
The Quest press is of high quality and capable of producing gallery-quality proofs. Rod studied printmaking at OCA for four years and considers the print-shop experience a major influence on his artistic progress.
