Printmaking, Art Making and Letterpress Studio in Magdalena, NM


The Village Press Print Studio - 504 First St., Magdalena, New Mexico (in the old Evett's building).

The Village Press Print Studio is an art and printmaking space dedicated to creative learning and artistic activities of all kinds. The modest (but adequately equipped) non-toxic studio has two etching presses - one that is 24"x60" and one 14"x36". The studio also offers an Amergraph UV exposure unit for the polymer photogravure etching process.

We also have letterpress equipment, metal foundry type and wood type. We have two 8x12 Oldstyle Chandler and Price platen presses, a Vandercook SP-15 proof press and two Kelsey tabletop presses - a 3x5 and a 6x9.

With ample, light-filled classroom space for 8 students (sometimes more depending on the application), the studio offers printmaking, letterpress and book arts classes and special event workshops. The studio and presses are available for rental to artists with printmaking or letterpress experience.
