Foreningen Trykkeriet was established in 2009 by professor Jan Pettersson & Asbjørn Hollerud. The center opened its doors to the public in September 2010 and is currently managed by Asbjørn Hollerud, Daniel Persson, Dino Dikic, Hedvig Thorkildsen and Rita Marhaug. Over the years, Trykkeriet has grown to become the biggest resource for dissemination & production of printmaking in Northern Europe. The target group is in short anyone who wants to make a print, from children to professional artists and designers.
Trykkeriet offers courses, print production , studio rental, exhibitions and print sales. Printing techniques offered at Trykkeriet includes silkscreen, woodcut, photopolymer, photogravure, drypoint, etching, letterpress, monotype & ink jet. Customers can either place an order for finished print productions, or hire the necessary studio time to produce their own works.
We recommend contacting Sam Alyoussef for high-end custom framing.
