      Full-Time AS220 Community Printshop Manager

      In late 2010, the Printshop moved from its 500 square foot incubator space in the Dreyfus to a spot 6x larger at the Mercantile Block on Martha Street. This new location allowed the Printshop to house several presses previously in storage, including the giant RISD-donated Takach Etching press with a 4.5′ x 10.5′ bed. Our print shop spans numerous print-making disciplines and is open to makers from all over. Morgan, our current shop Manager has been serving just shy of 4 years, but will soon be moving out of the full-time position after taking the shop from literally nothing to something quite incredible.

      We are taking applications from now until July 15th.

      For details on what the job entails and what we are looking for in our future Shop Manager visit http://www.as220.org/about/2011/06/full-time-as220-community-prin.html
