Leaving Johannesburg – The Artists’ Press

Sunday, February 3, 2019

I left Joberg with a full heart and happy memories and took a 4 hour bus ride north to White River to visit The Artist Press, a wonderful lithography studio run by Mark Attwood and Tamar Mason.  Their studio is situated on their farm property, in the midst of macadamia and avocado groves.  Besides running a professional print shop, they have a sustainable household and incredible garden and edible forest.  My sister and I had two extremely relaxing days at their place and benefitted from their warm hospitality.

The Artists’ Press has a fantastic reputation as a professional lithography studio and they invite artists from all over South Africa to print with them.  The work they publish can be seen on their website.  You can also see the incredible steps they have taken towards creating a sustainable lifestyle here.
