Plate Tone Printshop is looking for new members!

Plate Tone Printshop is looking for new members!

We are a Nashville-based printmaking studio with current membership openings. Basic knowledge of printmaking is required in the context of a fine art practice. Members of the Printshop create work including but not limited to etching, monoprint, monotype, polyester plate lithography, relief processes and marbling. Through hands-on workshops, demonstrations and group exhibitions, members increase their knowledge of printmaking and connect to other working artists. Our goal is to foster a vibrant, local printmaking community.

The Printshop provides the opportunity for artists to have 24-hour access to specialized equipment. Our facilities include two etching presses, a large inking table, a low toxic etching bath (Ferric Chloride as opposed to Nitric Acid), a Solarplate exposure unit, a large paper soaking sink, and more. We use exclusively non-toxic and low toxic printmaking materials.

The studio is conveniently located right off of I-40 in a storefront space on Charlotte near the Italian Market and Southern Thrift, in the hip Sylvan Park district.
