The Print Workshop is a collaborative project dedicated to offering professional printmaking facilities and taught courses for local and visiting artists and students of all age groups. The new facilities, established in 2021/2022 with two grants from the Incentive Fund, are housed in Öldugata 14 and offer rentable space and equipment for silkscreen, intaglio (linocut, woodcut, etching), letterprint and various hand printing techniques. They are replacing the shared printmaking facilities, which were located in the Technical Museum of East Iceland and were completely destroyed in the landslides of December 2020 (see our archived page about the old print workshop here).
The project partners are: Skaftfell, the Technical Museum of East Iceland, Lunga School, Heima artist collective, artist and printmaker Linus Lohmann, and the Fine Art department of the Iceland University of the Arts.
More information about the Print Workshop’s available equipment, courses, booking procedure, and user fees will be added here in the coming weeks.
