Pickwick Independent Press is a fine art printmaking shop in the heart of the arts district of downtown Portland, Maine. The press is located in SPACE Studios , a community of 35 active professional artists. The shop provides presses and equipment for intaglio, relief, letterpress, silkscreen, and offset lithography printmaking. By sharing the burden of equipment costs and studio rental fees, Pickwick offers artist tiered memberships, workshops, publishing opportunities and one-on-one assistance with projects. Their mission is to create energy around the process of making for both the art community and the greater community of Portland, connecting artists and printmakers and turning printmaking into a collaborative event.
