Welcoming new members for 2018!
EGPC turns another milestone in 2018. In May, the studio will be 5 years old beginning as a shared dream around a kitchen table. Come share our dream and become a new member at our first meeting of the year on January 14, Sunday at 11am.
To celebrate we have few exhibits and workshops in the planning but our primary focus remains to provide a functional printmaking and letterpress studio for the region. Each year we have improved the space, expanded our skills, and acquired betters tools,
EGPC supports itself thru membership fees, fundraising and the labour of volunteers. Membership fees cover the year’s rent and are not fixed but set in January by dividing annual rent by number of members. On average the fee has been $220/yr. Membership gives you 24 hr access, personal storage space, unlimited use of shared resources (etching press, small platen press, proofing press,book press,variety of metal type, oil and waterbased printing inks, screenprinting medium and ink, rollers and misc.tools/supplies).
