In our efforts to make Spudnik Press increasingly accessible, we’ve made some changes to the authorization process to introduce new artists and makers to our organization and facilities. As always, anyone interested in simply checking out the space is welcome to stop in and take a look around during any of our business hours or open studio sessions.
Authorization sessions include:
- General Studio Tour
- Overview of our programs that provide ongoing support to artists and makers
- Discussion of prior printing experiences to determine if minimum requirements for authorization are met
- Brief operational and safety demonstration on equipment and processes specific to the needs of the attendees
Once authorized, artists can take advantage of Open Studio or other Studio Access Programs. Artists may stay and print immediately upon completion of authorization. However, we recommend getting authorized well in advance of any project deadlines.
NEW 2019 Authorization Schedule:
Mondays: 7:00pm sharp
Fridays: 1:00pm sharp
You are welcome to drop in for authorization sessions, but it’s helpful if you RSVP to let us know that you are coming and what process(es) you want to be authorized for. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312-563-0302.
Letterpress Authorizations requires scheduling a hands-on printing session with a Teaching Artist. This 3-hour session costs $125. Email email@example.com to schedule an authorization.This requirement can occasionally be waived by providing a reference who can speak to the qualifications of the printer.
Hope to see you soon!
