As the blooms bloom, it’s time to schedule yourself in for MIxit time this summer. As usual, the summer scheduling offers you flexibility and convenience. You can do 12days at the regular rate of $400 and if you choose, you can schedule your days in blocks of time (meaning you can leave your work out for the next day). Extra days if you do the 12 day option are $35/day. If you do NOT do the full package of 12 days, but do want to schedule some days, the fee is $40/day for members.
Mixit Print Studio is a professional monoprint/intaglio studio located near Davis Square in Somerville, Massachusetts. Established in 1987 as a direct outgrowth of our previous cooperative printmaking workshop, Artist’s Proof, our goal was to put together a well-equipped professional studio and to foster a supportive and interactive community of printmakers/artists.
Years of experience and careful thought have gone into planning and improving our 1300 square feet of space. Our 40” x 70” American French Tool press and our 30” x 60” LeDeuil cast iron press are supplemented by a 24” x 48” Takach press. Vent hoods, moveable fans, and many windows provide ventilation. Large tables and counters provide surfaces for both “clean hands” and “dirty hands” work. We have a metal shear, an aquatint box, a light exposure set-up and a custom designed forced-air print dryer. The Mixit Print Studio provides solvents, rags, flat and cubby storage. Each artist is responsible for inks, paper, plates, blotters, and personal supplies. Proof in Print: A Community of Printmaking Studies, published by the Boston Library gives more information about Mixit Print Studio and related print studios.
