Platetone Printshop was founded in 2004 as community printmaking studio offering membership to fine art printmakers. Expanding upon its vision, Platetone Printmaking, Paper and Book Arts was formed in 2012 to include other paper media and book artists.
Located in East Nashville at 947 Woodland Street, the mission of Platetone is to inspire and interact with our community by providing accessibility to studio space and equipment, sponsoring events that showcase book, paper arts, and printmaking, while providing educational opportunities for all ages. We believe art should be accessible to everyone and that small groups of like-minds can inspire and enrich the community. Platetone exists to support local artists, inspire and create new artists, and serve as a local institution for all things book, paper, and print.
