The Kennedy Press is our traditional printmaking studio. Create work alongside other printmakers working in a variety of techniques and traditions, including intaglio, relief, and monotype.
To learn more about the studio, inquire about a subscription, or to schedule an orientation, please email email@example.com or by phone 207-338-2222.
The Kennedy Press is equipped with three etching presses (60″ x 38″ Conrad, 22″x50″ Dickerson Combo, 24″ x 45″ Brand), ferric etch bath, brayers, hot plate, and large drying rack. The studio is notably a “green” studio. We aim to use the safest current practices with as little toxins as possible (such as using chemicals that are solvent-free). Our studio monitors are happy to provide training on how to incorporate these methods into your working style.
Subscribers have access to a wide variety of tools and materials, including cutting tools (linoleum, wood, and etching), plexiglass pallets/plates, paper soaking and etching trays, hard and soft etching grounds, oil and water-based etching inks, eco-friendly ground remover, eco-friendly cleansers, and rags.
Additional materials such as paper, copper plates, and woodcutting blocks are available to purchase.
