Community Printmaking Studio & Workshop

Operating as usual


Well, things have changed significantly at Wingtip. We have downsized BIG TIME. As you can imagine, Wingtip life got crazy when the world started spinning and we had to rethink our mission. We're trying to figure out what we will look like, but we wanted you to know what's up. Plans are in place for Leftovers X, and the actual call is planned for Fall 2021. We're teaching and sharing the printmaking love, so let us know if you need anything!


Whew! What a year it's been. Wingtip has weathered the storm and we're finally thinking about Leftovers again. As in Leftovers X! Yup, can you imagine? Ten years of Leftovers coming up soon. Stay tuned.


Hey Wingtip Fans! I know. It' been a while. A good long while and we miss all of you. We are temporarily closed until we feel comfortable sharing our space. And we've put our beloved LEFTOVERS print exchange on hold until we can give our tenth year of delicious Leftovers all the luscious attention they deserve. Stay safe and stay tuned! We haven't forgotten you!


Hey printmakers! We haven't fallen off the face of the earth, we've just fallen in line with social distancing. For those of you lovers of Leftovers, don't worry, we're just taking our time. It'll be a feast to outdo Renaissance Chef Bartolomeo Scappi. Perfect for our delicious print exchange's 10th year. Stay tuned!


Online Summer Printmaking Workshop at Boise State


Hey all you lovers of Leftovers! We are a wee bit behind this year but that doesn't mean we aren't going to miss a chance to announce Leftovers X. Yes, that's Leftovers TEN! 10! That means we have 9 years of Leftovers behind us and Leftovers Ten is coming. So stay tuned. And spread the Leftovers Love by spreading the word.

It’s First Thursday and Wingtip has the distinction of exhibiting our longest monotype ever! Over 200 participants created a 150’ paper river that’s as long as the Hoff Building is tall. Swing by The Idaho History Museum between 5-7 and check out our Boise Arts and History Funded Print Boise River.

After a wonderful trip to Italy to spend time at Dedalo Printmaking Center in Abruzzo learning etching and aquatint with nitric, watercolor monotype and brushing up on collagraph, will leave tomorrow from Rome. Had a great visit at the Archivo Della Stamperia and couldn't resist taking a photo of this handle on a press wheel. Home soon to prepare our Print Boise River on July 13.


We think we've found the perfect location and steamroller for our next big event. Pack your bags, tools and block and head to the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. It could happen.


Another great day of Print Boise River at the Library! at Bown Crossing where even the teeniest and tiniest of feet too small to fit in a flip flop will find a way to be a printmaker!
