What is HIP?

Hunter Island Press (HIP) is a not-for-profit organisation with our primary objective to establish and operate a professional public access print studio in Hobart. The studio provides a place for artists to create work and pass on their skills to the community. Membership allows for studio access and inclusion in HIP exhibitions.
