About Shoestring Press

Shoestring Press is a membership-based fine art print shop and arts space in Crown Heights.

Dedicated to doing more with less, Shoestring Press serves artists and printmakers in Brooklyn with printmaking work space, technical expertise, gallery exhibitions, critical engagement, and intellectual community. We teach classes and workshops for all levels in traditional printmaking techniques (silkscreen printing, etching/intaglio, lithography, and relief printing), painting and drawing. Our goal is to make art making, and printmaking especially, accessible, affordable, and an integral part of the Crown Heights and greater Brooklyn Community.

Shoestring Press was founded in 2011, and our storefront space on Classon Avenue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn opened in January of 2014.
