Members supply their own plates and paper for proofing and printing.  We do carry a selection of paper that members may purchase.

Etching using zinc or aluminum is possible using a copper sulfate solution or ferric chloride for copper plates.  Screen printing is limited to stencil or hand drawn methods as we do not have darkroom facilities.

Annapolis Royal is a small rural town with a population of 500, located in southwestern Nova Scotia.  Art supplies are sometimes hard to find locally.
