Printmaker wins a draw!

We would like to announce that Debra won a draw at the Ron Kolbus Centre’s Annual Winter Garden Party!  What did she get?  A fantastic first aid kit, which she was happy to donate to the print studio.  Way to go Debra!

Here is Debra showing off her prize at Maya Hum's studio (just across from the Ron Kolbus Centre).

Safety is important. This will greatly improve our first aid supplies at the print studio!











Here’s a Health and Safety (Printmaking) Information Resource

Print studio saved. Workshops already on the go!

This year a group of Ottawa & Gatineau print-makers got together to keep an amazing print studio running in Ottawa.  The space located in Ottawa’s Nepean Creative Arts Centre, was slated to be emptied of its amazing presses, which were going to go back into storage.


Thankfully, a number of print-makers jumped in to save the print studio and keep the presses in use!

This month local print-maker, Debra James Percival, ran two copper etch workshops to educate artists about the space as well as greener alternatives to printmaking.  These workshops were focused on copper etching. The studio is Green and is only for non-toxic printmaking.  Each workshop had a terrific turnout and a number of amazing prints were created.

Congratulations on keeping the studio running!

Here are some photos of the studio in use!
