Studio Access

POSTED BY Open Studio | November 1, 2023

Friendly reminder!

While our studio is well-equipped for printing, its functionality extends beyond just that. You’re welcome to use the space without booking equipment. The equipment booking feature is handy when you know specific equipment is needed. However, feel free to show up and create spontaneously. Kindly ensure the space remains tidy and accessible to others. If you’ve booked but cannot make it, please cancel in advance to open the slot for others. Thank you!

Studio Updates

Welcome back, everyone! And welcome to this new forum for studio news, directly from Pudy’s Desk to your screen! Pertinent updates to studio access, equipment maintenance notices etc. will show up here.

11″ x 17″ Transparency Film Being Phased Out
Due to supply chain/import issues, this size of the film will no longer be available affordably. The 8 1/2″ x 11″ will continue to be supplied. If you need film positives in a larger size, please review the NEED FILMS LARGER THAN 11” x 17” ??? sign located near the laser printer.

Tricky Circuit Breaker
One of our circuit breakers has been acting up; when it is tripped, it cuts off power to the fluorescent light switches in the screen washout room and the screen coating room (amongst others). For directions on how to let there be light again, consult the sign posted on the washout room door.
