hey there! i'm moving to eskilstuna in april and was wondering if anyone knows about print workshops in the area, i.e. places where one can go and use the shop's equipment for etching, screen print, etcetera. also interested in workshops like this in stockholm, although i'm hoping there's something closer to me.
Thanks for any help! Other tips about eskilstuna appreciated smile.gif

Hi!

I live in Eskilstuna. I'm Swedish with an American boyfriend (we live together). Eskilstuna is nice, not too big, close to Stockholm, Örebro and Västerås.
Feel free to ask anything!

Where are you moving from?

Hi Dusty

I'm not sure about Eskilstuna but there are places in stockholm,
if you are a trained printmaker/artist then you can apply to join the artist collective KKV
www.kkv.nu based in Nacka(stockholm) its a great place with a fully equipped etching room, large presses and also great screenprint facilities, theres a yearly fee but its excellent value for the facilities...OR for basic screenprinting facilities at a very cheap price there is a Kulturhuset in Skarpnäck (stockholm)
kultureniskarpnack.se
I teach basic screenprinting workshops there once a month also, just email them for more details

OR there is Husby Konsthall, which is a great place with friendly staff but the printing facilities aren't too great ....
good luck with your search in Eskilstuna, it took me months to find KKV when I first moved here,
