The Print Studio at Waterfall Arts is a “non-toxic or green” studio. Nontoxic processes still use a variety of chemicals that are solvent-free and that aim to use the safest current practices. Waterfall Arts will provide training on how to incorporate these on-toxic methods into your working style.
