The Waterloo Community Arts Centre has opened a facility which promotes the craft of printmaking in the region. Dubbed the Waterloo Print Studio, the facility features custom hands-on workshop for school groups and businesses.
The studio is open every Friday from 10am to 4pm to allow experienced printmakers access to its equipment (which includes a Takach etching and lithography press), under the supervision of a trained technician. The program features instructor Hubert Haisoch, a printmaker with over 50 years of teaching experience in Canada and the U.S.
The Print Studio will feature programs such as lecture series, exhibitions and will promote print through youth programs. The facility is part of the Button Factory, a shared work space home to various art initiatives in the region.
