All sorts of traditional printing methods have made a real comeback in the art world. In no small part, Edinburgh Printmakers is partly responsible. This is a print studio just around the corner from where we live. They were having a clearance sale on Saturday, so Stan and I dropped by.

It was a beautiful day, and word had gotten out. The place was jam-packed with people! On the second floor there was a window where you could look down into the print studio.

In the back left you can see the screen printing tables. There's a press, sort of like our ECA Eagle Press near the front, although this one looks to be a little newer (but still old). Drying racks are to the left of that. Heck, the place is just chocked full of fun toys. It makes me want to get into our print studio at school and get my fingers in some paint! And I may have to explore etching next year. Hmmmmm.
