The Printmaking area offers several studio-based undergraduate-level courses that explore contemporary concepts and production in print media. The Printmaking facilities at the University of Windsor specialize in Intaglio, Relief, Mixed Media, and Digital Print techniques.
The studio includes an acid room (ferric chloride techniques), three intaglio presses (18"x36" PK Press; 18"x36" Brand; 30"x50" Brand), small table-top press, glass-top workstations, roll-up stations, hotplate, two fume hoods, hard ground and soft ground station, solvent station, paper drying racks, paper sink, light table, and flat file drawers. In addition to the intaglio and relief facilities and equipment, students can access the Digital Print Lab (DPL)
and the Make Lab
for digital and mixed media techniques.
Techniques covered include: intaglio, engraving, wood cut, linoleum relief printing, polyester plate lithography, silkscreen printing, collagraphy, digital printing and mixed media.
In our new downtown location, the Printmaking studio is part of the Make Lab, which includes a common work area shared with the Make Lab Fabrication studios (Wood, Metal & Casting) and a 3-D Print and Electronics Lab.
The Printmaking studio is located in the School of Creative Art's Freedom Way Building, Rm 101.
