Our grand opening event was a huge success, with good crowds coming through the studio all day long, lots of interest in printmaking and the demos, and some lovely people signing up to take classes! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to see us or sent along your well wishes from afar. We’re overwhelmed, grateful, delighted, and exhausted. And super excited to get down to the business of making prints with all of you!

Relief printing demo:
Our demo print: HEY. We printed this on t-shirts for some of our visitors. Can’t wait to see them being worn around town!
Special thanks to: Nicole Drouillard of Mercantile 519, who helped all day long by handling sales while I demoed and schmoozed; Leesa Bringas, who stayed up very late the night before helping set up the retail part of the shop; Eugenia Vlasova and Paul Phillippov of Weeded Words who made vinyl decals for our window and wall, as well as some sweet Levigator Press tote bags; my dear friend Monica Rock who helped with some of the gross jobs while getting the space ready, and who delivered the gorgeous flowers for the opening; and of course Peter, without whose support we wouldn’t even have this amazing space.
