If you find yourself in the neck of the woods of St. louis Missouri and have a sudden hankering for doing arts and crafts, look no further as All Along Press can help you out. It's a really cool studio space to do printmaking, silkscreens and other artsy stuff you can think of.
All Along Press on Cherokee street in St. Louis Missouri is a really cool printing shop and studio.
Artists can buy time at a very reasonable price to work on personal projects from silk screen, etching, and any other printmaking applications and processes. You can use the state of the art screens at the studio without having to buy or own your own equipment. Elysia and Steve, who own this studio and equipment, are the most helpful and genuinely generous people. They offer many classes and workshops in the varied process of the printmaking arts, at great and reasonable prices. They are very skilled in all of the printmaking process, so they are very helpful if you need assistance in the studio. Two friends and I signed up for studio time and a brush up class in silkscreen printing. We had a great time and came home with some really cool screen printed shirts of our artwork.
