Platetone was founded in 2004 as community printmaking studio offering membership to fine art printmakers. Since then, we have grown to incorporate Book and Paper Arts and and changed to become a 501c3 non profit.
We offer 24/7 studio access to equipment and space for creating including presses for etching, lithography and letterpress and well as a silk-screen darkroom and equipment for book and paper-making. Private studios are available within our space for artists of all kinds. We also teach workshops, provide exhibition opportunities and host a free educational Open Studio every second Saturday.
We are professionals, teachers, amateurs, students.
We make art and empower creatives through studio access, workshops and exhibitions.
"Great collective of artists, all talented and generous in sharing their skills." Kim Philips "Wonderful environment for collaborative work — a staple in Nashville's print community." Cynthia Marsh
