Printmaking Facilities

The printmaking studios at WSU provide a professional facility for explorations in print media at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

With 2,700 square-feet of combined space, resources include one room devoted to lithography, relief, intaglio, and associated processes, and a second exclusively for screenprinting. There is also a photo-processes room with a washout booth, pressure washer and exposure unit, and an acid and grounds room.

All spaces are vented for safe use of materials with the addition of pull-down vents and a downdraft worktable in the lithography and etching area.

Students working in printmaking also have access to the digital media facilities for medium format ink-jet printing and film generation.
