We miss you on a normal basis, but with all this social distancing we really want to see your smiling faces. So, please plan to join us for a Zoom call (or two or three) so we can chat for a bit. We are asking some of our friends from the print, design, and type worlds to be our guest and co-host for each zoom call. So we can see what they are up to and find out how you're doing.
Attendees: You. Open to the first 300 friends that join us.
Topic: What are our guest co-hosts doing? What are you up to? What are you making?
Duration: About an hour-ish.
Note: Meeting recorded and distributed for posterity's sake.

Grab a cold one and join us to relax and talk type. This after-hours Hamilton Hang is meant to be a good way to catch up with others. Are you printing a fun project? Bar-b-quing in the backyard? Or sorting sorting through your cases of type? Let's all share how our summers are going.
A tour of recent work and a stencil demo. Graham is a papermaker, printmaker, book artist, and fiber artist based in Atlanta, GA. She is an accomplished curator and arts educator.
