Workshops/PrintShop a Go-Go™
Iron Frog Press is Dallas' most highly sought-after printmaking workshops for novice to professionals. Custom classes are offered for ages 4+, all skill levels, and we have experience working with disabilities. We have two unique printmaking experiences you may come to Iron Frog Press to have your workshop or choose to have us bring our one-of-a-kind "go anywhere" mobile print shop PrintShop a Go-Go™ to you. Our on the go print shop is excellent for sharing the virtues of printmaking to anyone anytime. No press needed for our PrintShop a Go-Go™ workshops. Our exclusive "press less" printing process is only available with Iron Frog Press. Our signature hand printing tool, the Print Frog® Glass Baren, makes it possible for kids and adults to master printing quickly. This device has opened new possibilities for printing plates and blocks since you can now print alternative materials that can't print on a traditional press.
Printmaker, Matt Bagley, of Iron Frog Press, is a 2020 grant recipient from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs. This is his third year to be awarded an OCA grant for his PrintShop a Go-Go™ workshop series. These grants make it possible for Iron Frog Press to continue to bring free printmaking classes to Dallas residents in communities that may not have regular access to the arts.
Matt and Sharon continue to travel both locally and out of state to bring their PrintShop a Go-Go™ workshops and classes. They partner with universities, museums, teacher workshops, family programs, outreach organizations to create a fun, hands-on environment to promote and share the virtuous of printmaking. Iron Frog Press regularly asked to speak about printmaking for lectures, panel discussions, and when an expert in the field of printmaking is needed.
