This year, Crown Point Press is offering three workshops in etching and two workshops in photogravure. Each session lasts 5 days, Monday through Friday, 9AM-5PM. Take two, if you can. We recommend that you have experience in etching before taking photogravure.

Please note some of our workshops are full. If you would like to be put on a waiting list, please email Sasha Baguskas, Always inquire, since things change.

All of our workshops this summer are full. Please inquire about being added to our waiting list. The dates for the workshops are June 15-19, June 22-26, and July 6-10. We offer photogravure the weeks of June 15-19 and July 6-10; etching is offered all three weeks.

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 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 May 1, 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 or email (

We look forward to seeing you in the summer!
