Private Instruction Printmaking Program
Open Studio is pleased to offer private printmaking instruction. A private class is perfect for those interested in learning a specific technique, who learn better in a one-on-one scenario, or who are unable to participate in our regular education program due to scheduling constraints. Open Studio’s one-on-one teaching scenarios are arranged by the Technical Director to provide customized learning outside of regularly scheduled classes. A qualified instructor is paired with the student based on the learner’s desired outcomes. Please call 416-504-8238 for more information.

Custom Printmaking Program
Open Studio works with artists and galleries to realize custom printing projects on a case-by-case basis. In consultation with our Technical Director, we can help determine the best means to carry out your project. Our main focus is working with traditional print practices such as etching, relief, screenprinting, lithography and letterpress. If your project does not strictly fall into one of the above categories, but is still rooted in print media, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss the possibilities. Please call 416-504-8238 for more information.

Please read our registration policy here. All courses and workshops take place at: Open Studio, 401 Richmond Street West, Suite 104, Toronto, Ontario.
