Goathead Press is a print studio located in the Mighty Tieton Warehouse in the center of town. It is run by artists Fay Jones (manager), Karen Quint, and Robert Jones. It is an efficient workspace with two small presses and a recently acquired (on loan from artist Jean Behnke) large ETTAN Press with a 36" X 72" bed. It is an efficient work space, suitable for all kinds of relief printing, monoprinting, and simple copper plate etching. The press continues to run workshops in the summer and fall, and is available for artists to rent on a daily, or weekly basis. Artists may also become members of Goathead Press.
Following are the costs and general requirements for using the facility:
$40.00 per day
$200.00 for a 7 day week
$150.00 for a 5 day week
$600.00 for a 6 month membership
Goathead Press provides basic inks (both oil based, and water soluble), and cleaning materials. Standard paper may be purchased at cost ($2.00 per sheet).
Before starting to work, an artist using the studio will be given a demonstration on use of press, etching tank etc. After the initial demonstration, if an artist using the studio needs assistance, the press charges $40.00 per hour for a minimum of 4 hours.
