Castlemaine Press is a not-for-profit organisation made up of passionate printmakers who work together to provide a community-access print studio for printmakers near and far – a space where you can hire presses and equipment, do workshops, and take part in collaborative opportunities. We recognise that printmaking facilities are difficult to access and adequate studio space is also out of reach for many people. Castlemaine Press seeks to make printmaking more accessible by providing these facilities along with training, gallery space and a collegial atmosphere.
Our studio has great natural light, presses both large and small, plenty of bench space and easy access. Set in the Lot 19, arts precinct of Castlemaine, Castlemaine Press is a place to meet printmakers, work collaboratively, build skills and produce prints using quality equipment.
The space hosts a variety of activities that provide opportunities for members to work alongside others, be supported by more experienced printmakers and gain skills.
Castlemaine Press is community owned and run. We are run by a committee selected annually by and from our members.
