STPI is located at Robertson Quay, along the upper parts of Singapore river. It is an integrated print arts center that makes it own paper, and does range of printing from woodcut, metal etching, limestone block, silkscreen etc. The museum is a quiet place partially illuminated by sunlight.

I had a chance to visit their annual open house last weekend and had a great time in the behind the scene workshop (about 4 times the museum size) to gain an first hand + hands on experience in making the various types of print.

The photos are taken from the open house. Pity it happens only once a year.

The exhibition I saw yesterday was lovely. But i hoped for a little more.
Just one artist showcased in a marvellous gallery. So if the artist is dud you have nowhere to go.
Didn't see a soul.

This is an often missed little museum/gallery/print and paper-making facility that is well worth a visit if you are at Robertson Quay or Clarke Quay. I went past it several times thinking it was a private enterprise but eventually discovered it is open to the public.

If you visit on a Saturday at 2.30pm there is a free one-hour guided tour and you can go down into the basement and see the printmaking studio which is fascinating. The gallery also sells prints and tucked away at the back there is an area of pull-out 'walls' with fine art prints on them - all made on-site with artists on their residency programme.

It is very small but a very interesting look at cutting-edge printmaking and worth an hour - especially if you manage to catch the tour. The staff in the office are always happy to answer any questions if you stick your head around the door and smile at them. :)
