Castlemaine Press is a place to meet printmakers, work collaboratively, build skills and produce prints using quality equipment in a collaborative and relaxed atmosphere.
We provide affordable access to printmaking facilities for artists and host an exciting program of classes for beginners and experienced printmakers alike, as well as providing space for collaborative projects, artists’ residencies and exhibitions.
