Green Pea Press seeks to deepen appreciation and understanding of the printmaking arts by providing residents of the Tennessee Valley educational lectures and workshops, access to equipment, and opportunities for exhibition, collaboration and exchange.

We are the only public-access printmaking studio in North Alabama, and part of the burgeoning art community at historic Lowe Mill.

We provide artists access to printmaking equipment in a variety of media, including intaglio, relief, monoprint, letterpress, screenprint and waterless lithography, as well as bookmaking.

We hold classes and workshops in these media for all different skill levels.

We print custom orders, including t-shirts and other textiles, posters, cd covers, invitations and more. Your purchase will support the studio and the local artists who print your order.
