Wallowa Printmakers Guild


A Gathering Place for the Arts in Wallowa County

Offering Seasonal Printmaking Workshops

The Josephy Center for Arts and Culture fosters the creation and appreciation of fine-art prints.  Our program supports artists with tools and equipment, a safely-shared work environment, education, low-cost materials, and a venue for display.

The Guild is a collection of people creating with ink in a 24-hour, well-equipped studio.  We are artists of all skill levels sharing the creative process.  Join us as we create, learn, support and collaborate.

CURRENT CLASS OFFERINGS: Starting in 2020, we’re offering weekly open studio printmaking classes. These occur on Mondays. More information available here. We also have special March workshops available below.
