Today we had a group from the University of Windsor’s Leddy Library in the studio for a group letterpress session in which they designed and printed a collaborative broadside. Everyone had a blast and they made some great posters!
This is a fun class we’ve done quite a few times now with different groups. If you have a group of friends or colleagues who would love a fun, creative outing together, give the studio a ring and we’ll be happy to help you make it happen!
This weekend we closed the studio and drove up to Oshawa to pick up this gorgeous beast:
It’s a 6.5×10 Chandler & Price Pilot, fully refurbished, in beautiful condition, and ready to be put to work. It’s a perfect press for our tiny space, with the capability to handle large scale production while being user friendly and a fantastic learning press for our students and studio members. We can’t wait to fire it up and get printing.
Today was a busy day in the studio, with a class from the University of Windsor coming by in the morning for a letterpress workshop and a printing session with the lino block class in the evening. Here are a few pictures:
We’ve just finished up our last print job for the month, this client-designed poster for some upcoming concerts by local musician Allison Brown. Allison took part in our June session of Up The Mesh Count where she designed the screenprinted red background, and I added the letterpress text afterwards.
