Inter-Ocean Curiosity Studio

Tour the studio!

Since 1980 the Inter-Ocean Curiosity Studio has been located in Englewood, just south of Denver, Colorado. It offers custom handmade paper and pulp, and workshops, apprenticeships and internships in papermaking and letterpress printing. Accomodations may be available to visiting artists and students.

The studio includes tools and equipment for bookbinding, woodworking, metalworking, ceramics and glass. An extensive library of books, periodicals and ephemera associated with papermaking, printing, printmaking, book arts, graphic design, sculpture, fine art and related topics of interest are located on-site.

The studio compound includes a 1917 house containing the library and kitchen, an attached cafe from 1920s containing the art studio, and a 1,000 sq ft shop that houses the printing and papermaking facilities.
