The Prankster Press is a letterpress, fine art printmaking, and paper arts studio in Detroit’s Eastern Market, housed the the Riopelle Artist Collective. Run by printmaker and teacher Lyz Luidens, the Prankster Press offers custom bookbinding, letterpress printing, and fine art printing services, consultation, and classes.
Classes are open to the public, but you can also schedule private classes for smaller groups. Your group can come to the studio, or depending on the class, Lyz can bring the studio to you!
Lyz Luidens graduated from the University of Michigan Penny Stamps School of Art and Design in 2013 after completing a BFA in printmaking. She teaches in and out traditional classrooms and studio spaces, and continues to create bodies of artwork in the print studio. Lyz has completed multiple teaching artist residencies in the city of Detroit, and is currently working on a city-wide printmaking project, the Detroit Atlas Collaboration, funded by a Knight Arts Challenge Grant.
