Help Northland's only community owned fine art print studio grow into a thriving creative hub for New Zealand artists and print makers.
Situated in Whangarei amidst the beautiful surroundings of the Quarry Arts Centre, Te Kowhai Print Trust is Northland's only community owned fine art print studio. Te Kowhai Print Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to advancing and preserving the practice of fine art printmaking and offers learning experiences to all ages and experience. With over 32 years of history the trust continues to serve as a community facility where many forms of printing are both enjoyed and encouraged.
The Print Trust has a significant and unique Stone Lithography facility with two presses and over twenty Lithography stones of various sizes from very large to very small.
Other studio capabilities also include etching with a magnificent press built by Bruce Young and a much larger press. Also in use for Letterpress is a 1890 Arab Printing Machine, which also has available for use a number of cabinets containing lead ‘movable type’ and plenty of large wood type for printing pleasure.
With artists donating 2 prints from every edition to Te Kowhai Print Trust, one to sell to support the trust and one to go into the archive, Te Kowhai Print Trust has built a collection of over 2000 prints of historical importance to New Zealand.
Donating to Te Kowhai Print Trust will help with the running, maintenance and upgrading of all the unique printing equipment. Our aim is to energise Te Kowhai Print Trust to become a thriving creative hub for New Zealand artists and print makers.
