Crown Point Press Workshops
One of our goals as an etching studio and gallery is to pass on what we know to the world outside our walls. We offer these workshops so that a range of people can experience intaglio first-hand, with guidance from our master printers.
This year, Crown Point is offering three workshops in etching and two in photogravure. Each session lasts 5 days, Monday through Friday, 9-5. Take two, if you can. We recommend that you have experience in etching before taking photogravure. Read quotes from past participants here.
ALL 2014 SUMMER WORKSHOPS ARE FULL. Please email Sasha Baguskas to be added to a wait list and to be informed if any other workshop sessions will be added.
The cost is $1,350 per workshop, including materials except paper and copper for etching, and paper, copper, film and gelatin for photogravure. The cost of those materials is based upon use, and is tallied at the end of each workshop.
To apply, write a short letter or send an email to Sasha Baguskas, firstname.lastname@example.org, with the following information:
• Your name, address, phone number, email
• The workshop session(s) (etching or photogravure) you would like, with alternates if possible. Please make clear your order of preference for the dates.
• Have you taken our workshops before?
• If you have not taken our workshops, please tell us a little bit about yourself—are you an artist, printer, photographer, student, teacher, curator, or interested layperson in the print world? Have you worked with printmaking before? What medium? How extensively? Please make this brief.

Upon confirmation of your registration, payment is due in full. If you cancel before April 30, we will refund half the fee ($675); there is no refund after that date.
We prefer not to see examples of your art as part of your application, because on principle we don’t make judgments about the art of our workshop participants, either before or during the workshops. No experience is necessary in order to attend; you will work at your own speed with help from our printers. We’d love to see you in San Francisco this summer at Crown Point Press.
If you have questions call Sasha Baguskas at 415-974-6273. We will confirm receipt of all applications by email or phone.
Please phone us if you do not receive confirmation
within one week of applying.
