The Museum hosts the APA Wayzgoose

The Amalgamated Printers’ Association will be holding their annual Wayzgoose at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum this year the weekend of June 19-21st, 2014 in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. The APA consists of both professional and amateur letterpress printers, whose emphasis is on the exchange of members’ letterpress printing and information on sources of equipment and better printing practices. This Wayzgoose is a three-day affair and includes an auction, a flea market of printers’ treasures, tours of the museum, and workshops with great presenters like Rick von Holdt, Jessica Spring, Jen Farrell, Jim Horton, Scott Moore, Melinda Stockwell, and Brad Vetter (and more!). A major highlight of this gathering is visiting with other kindred spirits who love letterpress.

Registration is now open to the public as well as APA members. Please use this site to find all the most updated schedule information, get the paperwork to register for the Wayzgoose, and find out about available workshops and presentations. Registration will be limited to 125 attendees, so sign up now!

We are working to get all the spaces prepped, name tags ordered, and wood type arranged for a great Wayzgoose. If you are anxiously awaiting the museum Wayzgoose, please know the Hamilton Wayzgoose will be November 7-9th, 2014. We'd love if you could join us for both events!
