Pressworks Co-op, established in 1984, is a group of printmakers who share space, equipment, and camaraderie. We are a diverse group of artists working in various forms of printmaking such as intaglio, relief, monoprint, lithography, collagraph, solarplate, and various other experimental forms of printmaking.
