INK SPOT PRESS

ABOUT INK SPOT PRESS LTD

Owners: Ruth Channing and Raoul Middleman Master Printer: Ian Jackson Associate: Richard Hellman

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

Ink Spot Press Ltd is a nonprofit art gallery and intaglio printmaking workshop.

Ink Spot Press was created by Ruth Channing and Raoul Middleman in the tradition of the painter-printmaker:

Artists who work in the medium of printmaking,

who may enlist the assistance of a master printer to realize their own artistic vision in print.

Artists work one-on-one with Ian Jackson. Choose etching, engraving, monotype, relief or collograph- or try them all. You may be an experienced printmaker, or have studied printmaking at some point; or, you may never have made a print before- whatever the case you are welcome. Our workshop boasts a heavy duty Griffin intaglio press, with a generous 26” x 48” press bed. We use a nontoxic salt-and-copper-sulfate etching solution on zinc, and most of our cleanup is done with vegetable oil rather than harsh solvents. We use traditional Charbonnel etching ink ourselves but soy based inks can be used if wanted. For engraving and drypoint we use the traditional copper plates.

ABOUT THE GALLERY:

The mission of our gallery is to display work produced in the workshop, and the work in the gallery is for sale.

Our main focus is the workshop, so we are open “by appointment” -that is, just text, phone or email us and

we will happily open up for you!

We’re always here during the week and can usually open up on weekends as well. Phone: 443-798-1167 (Ruth) 830-708-6424 (Ian) Email: theinkspotpress@gmail.com WORKSHOP FEE: Rates start at $35 per hour. SUPPLIES: We’ll discuss what you need to bring, before you come, depending on what process you’ll be doing. We provide most of the necessary supplies.
