Join us for a fun day of printing with blocks from the "Globe Collection" at the museum. Dating mostly from the mid-20th-century, the Globe Printing collection includes many pieces of handmade type and illustrations. This workshop will unveil a few highlights from the collection and allow participants to work with vintage blocks rarely seen and not often printed at the museum.
The Globe Printing Company of Chicago was once among the leading makers of posters for circuses, attractions and general merchandising. After the business closed, the largely irreplaceable printing blocks were stored in a semi trailer for decades until the trailer’s owner was told to move them or they would be sent to a landfill. Thankfully, someone had the presence of mind to contact the Hamilton museum, and volunteers transferred the trailer’s contents to Two Rivers.
Space is limited, so reservations and a $65 non-refundable deposit when you sign up are required. The $60 to fulfill the full cost of $125 of the workshop will be due at the beginning of the workshop. We accept cash, credit card, or check. Because of the nature of the pressroom and the pieces being used participants in the workshop must be 18 years or older.
