Founded in 2011, Shoestring Press is a membership-driven Brooklyn print shop that provides affordable, accessible art education and work space for art making in Crown Heights and the greater Brooklyn area. We are a community of member artists sharing workspace and exchanging ideas, offering workshops in printmaking, painting and drawing. While most of our members are printmakers working in silkscreen printing, intaglio/etching, relief printing and lithography, we've also welcomed digital artists, interdisciplinary artists, and writers into the Shoestring community. 

Workshops emphasize hands-on learning, and encourage experimentation and independence. In addition to learning the basics of printmaking, painting and drawing, you will also come away inspired to push the limits of the medium and embrace the beauties, quirks and idiosyncrasies that make printmaking unique.

Awesome class. Lane is a great instructor and willing to carefully explain everything in great detail, from process to materials and even a bit of history. The first class is structured to break the ice with classmates while learning the basics. Shoestring Press is a relaxed, welcoming environment in which everybody works hard and has fun doing so.

Extremely good value & the size-of-class was perfect. Very informed, experienced & knowledgeable instruction. Shoestring Press is very much a laid back but WORKING studio which, for me, was comforting. It is not a prima dona's atmosphere. Introductory basics were covered as were more sophisticated techniques and everyone was encouraged to participate with a project of their own choice that was helpfully & patiently supervised. If there was a nit to pick it would be that the session could have a more structured introduction with a bit more history of the medium that would provide some perspective on the different approaches, possibilities, materials, limitations and strong suits. Overall it was well worth it.
