Lithography is an exciting medium, and offers an incredible range of marks and visual expression for the artist. If you are interested in learning more about lithography, contact the studio to determine what type of workshop you would like to schedule. Workshops are scheduled on demand. In this day and age of increasingly busy calendars, we prefer to match schedules with you. Below are sample workshops and pricing estimates. Please contact us with any questions.
MUSKAT STUDIOS IN JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA
In May 2018, Carolyn and her assistant Stacy Friedman traveled to Artists Proof Studio (APS) in Johannesburg, South Africa to teach two weeks of litho workshops. Founded in 1991 by Kim Berman and Nhlanhla Xaba, the studio is an amazing center for printmaking. We went into high gear, sharing the love of litho with over 80 students in a very short amount of time. But so worth it to share info and experiences with so many talented artists!! While in Johannesburg, we also were able to visit the studio of Joe Legate at LL Editions – another Tamarind printer sharing the litho love with artists!
After Johannesburg, we traveled to Mark Attwood’s print studio, The Artists’ Press, in White River, South Africa – it seemed almost unreal, it was so beautiful! Both the print studio and the locale – and Mark and Tamar were exceptionally generous hosts! We were in awe of what all they have accomplished so far, and super impressed with the ongoing projects the studio is producing.
It wouldn’t have been a complete trip without a few days spent on safari – truly mind-blowing!! Have I mentioned that I’m mostly a city-dweller? We loved it!
MUSKAT STUDIOS IN HANOI, VIETNAM
Since 2010, Master printer and artist Carolyn Muskat has traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam, to work with artists, teach printmaking, and establish a cross-cultural partnership. These trips have been sponsored by the Indochina Arts Partnership (IAP), and have help build a lithography studio at the Center for Excellence in Graphic Arts at the Contemporary Art Center in Hanoi. Working with many of the leading artists and educators in Vietnam, Ms. Muskat shared contemporary printmaking methods and taught both stone and plate lithography.
Iron Printmakers is in its seventh year! We had no idea that it would be so popular and last so long! Four schools competed on February 23, 2019 at the Mass. College of Art & Design’s print studio: Boston University, Lesley University, MassArt, and School of the Museum of Fine Arts @ Tufts. We were honored to have Barbara Putnam, Paul DeRuvo and Sharon Hayes as our esteemed judges. Once again, it was a flat out, crazy day of amazing printmaking!
And the winner was . . . . Boston University! And in a sweep – the BU team also won the Golden Glove of Cleanliness award! It was a fabulous day – all of the students were amazing and I am thrilled to know they are carrying the print torch forward!

MUSKAT STUDIOS AND THE MUSEUM OF PRINTING
Each year, Carolyn and her husband Seth packed up everything but the press and traveled to the Museum of Printing in N. Andover for their Annual Printing Arts Fair. Carolyn spent the day printing new images in the ongoing tool series: this year, there was an image of Plumb Bobs as well as an image of a beautiful Plane -- thanks to assistant Emma O’Leary’s dad’s amazing collection of antique planes! The weather was warm and humid, but the printing and the crowds were great!

MUSKAT STUDIOS ANNUAL OUTING
Muskat Studios sponsored a day of fun for the terrific assistants who work at the studio keeping everything running along. The weather was perfect – warm and sunny! We spent the day at Kimball Farms enjoying a (very) competitive game of mini-golf, too much fried food at lunch, super killer bumper boats and an insane amount of ice cream! Thanks to all of my gang!!! Practice your game for next year!
