September 19th, 2020 St. Michael’s Printshop Update
SMP is now reopening to the public in a reduced capacity, yay! We have been open for a little over a month to members on a case by case basis and are now opening to new members and renters. We will also be starting a series of screenprinting workshops with a very limited number of participants. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information and updates. We are also starting up our monthly open studio nights. The first one will take place Thursday Sept 23rd. Please note that for the foreseeable future these will be registration only events so we can limit the amount of participants to ensure everyone’s safety. Please do not show up unannounced. We are very excited that we will be tabling at Lawna Vawnya’s Print & Merch Fair taking place Friday and Saturday Oct 2nd & 3rd. Please come check us out there and cop some SMP prints and merch! We will be rolling out the Anne Meredith Barry mobile press on Saturday during the fair to do some live printing. We have lots of blocks and paper, so come make a print with us!
If you are interested in using the studio space, please email, call or drop by during open hours 7 days a week from 12pm-5pm. We are providing a COVID-19 Safe Studio Practices guidelines to our members that are posted in the shop as well as online. We provide hand soap, hand sanitizer, gloves, disinfectant, and wipes for studio use. We now have a booking calendar on our site that all members are required to use before coming to the shop to limit the amount of people at the shop at one time. It can be found under “booking calendar”.
We look forward to seeing you in person soon! If you have anything you are working on that you would like us to share on social media please get in touch!
We hope that you are safe and in good health.

June 9th, 2020 St. Michael’s Printshop Update
As of June 9th, St. Michael’s Printshop will be accepting applications from members to use the studio space on a case-by-case basis. As our community’s safety is always our top priority, we will unfortunately be closed to the public.
Applications for studio use can be written, video/audio recording, or via phone/video-calling. In your application, please briefly describe your project, the dates or time frame in which you wish to use the studio space, and the equipment you will be using. We will be monitoring, via distance, when members are using the studio space in order to ensure physical distancing protocols can be followed at all times. Additionally, we will be asking studio users to fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire prior to each studio use to ensure the safety of all our members. We are in the process of making a google calendar where members will be able to reserve a slot in an area – or book a press online. We will allow bookings in increments of 4 hours to give members enough time to work on their project and thoroughly clean and disinfect before the next member arrives. Members will be required to check and book time online before coming to the printshop. Let us know if you are unable to access the calendar online and we will assist you.
If you are interested in using the studio space, please email your application, or set up a time for phone/video-calling by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We will be providing a COVID-19 Safe Studio Practices guidelines to our members that will also be posted in the shop. This will be a living document that we will be updating as we receive guidelines from the health department or when new information becomes available. We will keep members updated when we make change. We will also be providing hand soap, hand sanitizer, gloves, disinfectant, and wipes for studio use.
We look forward to seeing you in person soon! For the time being let us know how St. Michael’s can support you while you are not in the shop. If you have anything you are working on that you would like us to share on social media please get in touch via email.
We hope that you are safe and in good health.

Following with the Federal Government’s news brief, SMP will be temporarily closing until further notice and encouraging all its members to stay home and practice social distancing. SMP will be postponing complimentary print month events and other events/workshops hosted at our studio.

We will be available via email and social media to respond to any questions our members may have. Those wishing to take advantage of our free membership are encouraged to email SMP with the subject ‘complimentary membership’ (the end date for sign up will still be April 4thas this will be done online). Complimentary memberships are valid until the end of 2020.
As this situation is constantly developing we will be sure to keep our artists informed of changes as we move forward. Please reach out to email@example.com you have any questions.
