Deposit due at sign-up: $65.00

Letterpress print at Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum with Tracy Honn

Tracy will teach some tips for printing, and over-printing, onto big sheets of paper. You'll make abstract repeat patterns using wood type, and participants will collaborate to print decorative papers . . . and some other useful things. Non-denominational holiday cheer for all!

The workshop runs from 9 am to 5 pm. The day starts off with a 45 minute tour of the museum and instruction on how to use a sign press. The majority of the workshop consists of printing. Clean-up begins at 4 pm and the day finishes up at 5 pm. Lunch is not provided, but there are many restaurants nearby or you can pack your own and eat here at the museum.

 Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes that may get ink on them.

The cost is $125 per person, with the museum providing supplies. The workshops are not meant for producing resale work. No previous experience is necessary. 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 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.
