Beirut Printmaking Studio
Beirut Printmaking Studio is an inclusive and open space for people from all walks of life interested in discovering, learning, and practicing art through the printed image. We offer workshops in analog printmaking (all forms) and darkroom photography in black & white and color.
We also offer short interdisciplinary workshops such as bookmaking, paper marbling, cyanotype and alternative Polaroid techniques. We take pride in hosting all those techniques under one roof! We are the only open studio in Lebanon still working with lithography and c-prints (full analog color photography).
Courses & Workshops
Our courses in printmaking techniques, photography and darkroom are all 3-credit equivalent.
Our workshops run for 1 to 4 sessions and they serve as a complement to the techniques taught in our longer courses.
Our darkroom is equipped with four enlargers that cover small (35mm), medium (6×6 & 6×7), and large (4×5) formats both for b&w and color. We also have three drum processors for developing films each dedicated to a specific process, C-41, E6 and B&W. Recently we added a RA-4 print processor with the capacity of making c-prints of 50cm x 200cm.
We have a fully equipped woodworking workshop that is available as a complement for for our community when it comes to making frames, chassi, installations or anything they might need.
