Fine-Art Digital Printmaking Workshops
Our workshops are hands-on and cover a wide range of techniques, equipment and materials. The workshops take place in the studios of Cone Editions Press and and at Making Art Safely in Santa Fe, NM. These workshops offer attendees the unique opportunity to learn workflow and procedures from the masters. These workshops are an excellent opportunity to learn proven workflow in a fully equipped digital printmaking studio immersed in the latest technologies. Come see why Margaret Miller, Director of the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum declared that “Jon Cone is almost the Tamarind of the moment, because he’s done so much with the training and adapting of this new medium for printmaking.”
