Welcome to Summit House Press

This is the post excerpt.

Welcome to the Summit House Press Website. Summit House Press is a full-equipped printmaking studio on Pumpkin Hill Road in Warner, NH, owned and run by Mary Mead. We offer individual and small-group instruction in a variety of printmaking processes, options for collaborative projects and small editioning services. Mead has worked primarily in printmaking over the past sixteen years. A former assistant professor at Colby-Sawyer College (New London, NH), she currently teaches printmaking at the New Hampshire Art Institute (Manchester, NH), and at a variety of venues in New England including Chases Garage (York, ME), Two Rivers Printmaking Studio (White River Jct. VT), and the Kimball Jenkins School of Art (Concord, NH). Set among gardens in the summer and surrounded by forest all year near a network of nordic ski trails,  Summit House Press offers a beautiful, quiet and creative environment in which to learn a printmaking technique or complete a printmaking project.
