PELE WORKSHOPS

Pele Workshops offers classes covering a wide variety of printmaking techniques. Through our workshops, participants have the unique opportunity to work in the Pele Prints facilities alongside peers and printmaking professionals in an environment that is all about producing your best work.

 

All of our workshops are designed to be flexible. Instead of working off of a set calendar, you decide which class you're interested in and when you want to schedule it. The tuition is a flat rate for each workshop, and each class can include anywhere from 1-10 students. It's up to you!

 

Workshops are for ages 16+, and no printing experience is necessary. Prices include tuition and inks. All specialty materials, plates, and items are available for an additional materials fee. We offer four studio-based workshops and one classroom style workshop. The studio-based workshops are hands-on, two day classes that cover a specific printmaking technique. The classroom style workshop is a one day seminar. The workshops to choose from are below. Have questions? Ready to schedule your workshop? Contact us for all the details.
