Mighty Tieton is an incubator for artisan businesses. This small group of entrepreneurial urban and rural designers, architects, artists, and creative individuals is working in the Central Washington town of Tieton, fifteen miles west of Yakima. Mighty Tieton's goal is to help revitalize the economy of the town and region by combining creative and professional skills, and connecting with local resources to build successful businesses involving art, design, hospitality, and recreation.
Several artisan businesses have started under the Mighty Tieton banner, including a fine press and bindery, a printmaking studio and press, a goat cheese creamery, a cidery and gift-fruit business, a kite production facility, book warehousing, event spaces, rental cabins for short visits and longer residencies, and several artist's studios.
You can visit the Paper Hammer Studios at 613 Elm Street. We are usually open regular business hours. At this time, the Mighty Tieton homes and studios are not regularly open to the public. Visits and short tours can be arranged in advance. To schedule a visit, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
