    Hello! I’m a recent graduate of Concordia U, looking for printmaking ateliers in Ottawa. Do you know of any websites or organizations that could be helpful?
    I apologize if this isn’t the place to ask, but it’s the only Ottawa print site I could find, and I thought it would be worth a shot.
    Thank you!

      Hello!
      You may want to look into the Ottawa School of Art and the Nepean Creative Arts Centre for possible printmaking workshops in Ottawa. Our collective sometimes has workshops, though we are off for the Summer, would that interest you?
      We will be having a show at Britannia Gallery opening August 4th, I hope you can pay us a visit! Details will be posted.

    Thanks so much for your response! I will look into those resources. I’m not looking for workshops per se, so much as access to a studio with Intaglio equipment (and community); I know in Montreal there are a few ateliers where you can apply and then pay dues to become a member of a print studio, so I was hoping there might be something similar in Ottawa. Workshops would be useful too, though, so I will definitely check those out.

    I’ll definitely come to the show! Thank you so much for letting me know about it. 🙂
