Located in Grand Marais, MN

Open 11-5 Fridays and Saturdays through the winter’ and by chance or appointment.

We are a small family-based printmaking operation in a scenic little coastal town in northern Minnesota.

We make woodblock prints by hand, pictures of recognizable scenes mostly from the northwoods. Many of these appear as illustrations in books for children and adults.

The printmaking studio and gallery is housed in a historic church, selling the current editions of hand-printed woodcuts, as well as the work of local and regional artists.

The web store is open all year.

In addition to the hand-printed woodcuts, we have books, cards, calendars, t-shirts. We are shipping weekly.  Please do browse !
