Open Studio with a monitor

Open Studio hours provide new members with easy access to the shop and allows them to become familiar with studio procedures with a monitor on site, as well as the opportunity to work in the studio beyond regular Dunham operating hours. 

Current Studio Hours:

Saturday: 1 PM – 6 PM
Sunday: 1 PM – 6 PM

Stay tuned, members! Starting in January, our hours will be extending. We plan on having a hybrid reservation system for the weekends, to allow selected hours for an open and shared studio, and selected hours for reserved hours with the presses.

Follow our blog, social media, and newsletters in the coming months for more details as plans develop.

We thank you for your understanding and patience through these times.

Happy printing!
