If you’re always dreaming of travel this is a wonderful workshop for you! We provide vintage maps for creating unique prints.

The workshop runs from 9 am to 4 pm. The day starts off with instruction on printing and using a sign press. The majority of the workshop consists of printing with wood type from a large collection available in the pressroom at the museum. We have a collection of vintage maps that you are welcome to use. You can also bring your own maps that have special locations or meaning to you.
