Print Envy? Yep! Madison Osborne's 72 by 40 Inch Woodcut at Clemson University's Print Shop!

Madison Obsborne is a Bachelor of Fine Arts Candidate in Art with an emphasis in printmaking at Clemson University.  To see more of Madison's work, please go to:  

The mission of the Printmaking Area at Clemson University is to develop the highly creative artist, one capable of making printmaking a core component of their studio practice and, ultimately, a life’s work. The Printmaking Area encourages cross-disciplinary strategies for making while holding tightly to the importance of craft. At Clemson University, we consider the indirect nature of printmaking (artist-matrix-print) a palette of techniques for exploring ideas rather than an end in itself. The printmaking area’s pedagogy champions a scholarship-based and civically minded approach to making.

While facilities do not dictate the success of any program, they do help:
  • Vandercook Number 4 letterpress
  • Sizable metal type collection
  • Wright etching press (2 x 4 foot)
  • Large format custom etching press (5 x 8 foot)
  • Large format rosin box (2 ½ x 3 ½ foot)
  • Takach lithography press (3 x 5 foot)
  • Rembrandt lithography press (2 ½ x 5 foot)
  • Multiple backing slabs for lithographic plate work
  • An exceptional collection of lithography stones (up to 2 x 3 foot)
  • Modern ventilation system
  • Silkscreen exposure unit (up to 2 ½ x 4 foot)
  • 26-1K Nu-Arc exposure unit
  • Large format Epson printer with dedicated workstation
  • Flatbed scanner

Resources at Clemson University are too vast to list but noteworthy for printmaking students:

  • Free downloads of the entire Adobe Creative Software Suite to personal devices
  • Free access and use of Adobe’s Creative Cloud
  • State-of-the-art Adobe Digital Studio with dedicated staff
