We encourage members to produce an edition of prints, which are traded, framed by WPA and exhibited annually. Each year WPA members choose a theme and define parameters of the trade portfolio. Members exchange experiences of pulling an edition, as well as receive a collection of prints. We try to subsidize press time for editions or connect printmaker with someone who has a press. We can also try and pair the inexperienced with the experienced for editioning. This is not a time to learn a new medium of printmaking. Work in an area that you are comfortable. Remember that pulling an edition requires time beyond the creation of imagery.
