OPEN STUDIO TIME

Our printmaking studio at the recommissioned Salt Spring Middle School will be open for members to use. 

You must be a member of the Salt Spring Printmakers. Go to the tab 'Become a member' if you have not yet joined.

Before the first time you use the studio, you must be oriented to it. Orientations are held on 'Studio Days' which are the second Tues of every month. 

MEMBERS CAN USE THE STUDIO WITH THESE TWO FEE OPTIONS:

1. Full access when the studio is open (Mon - Sat)

  • $255/year

  • $240/year early bird fee if paid before Sept 15. Please note that this works out to $20/month, less than the cost of a lunch out so this is a steal of a deal!      

  • Payments can be made in full in September, or in two installments in September and January

 

2. Pay as you go when the studio is open. ​
