Hey there friends of Levigator Press: we have some Very Big News to share with you all. We’re super excited about it and hope you will be too!
At the end of this month, the Levigator Press studio and shop will be closing and we will be moving the majority of the printing equipment into our new home studio (part of the big building project we’ve posted about a few times this fall). We’ll no longer have a full time physical store, and the new studio won’t be open to the public. But! We will be able to do a lot more shows, pop-ups, and special events, and plans are in the works to bring our classes to other venues around Walkerville (Metamakers Cooperative, Artspeak Gallery, and Fusion Fiber Arts, for starters).
I have absolutely loved sharing my studio with you all over the past nearly five years. When I opened the studio in 2015 I hoped to create a welcoming space of learning and art-making, and the amazing students and artists who have come through my door since then have blown me away with their enthusiasm and their love of printmaking and bookbinding. I’m eternally grateful to all of you for helping me make this place the fun little community studio I had hoped for.
This new direction will make space for more collaboration with some of the other great arts organizations in our neighbourhood and allow me to do more shows, visit more classrooms, and teach a wider variety of skills. I can’t wait to see where it leads me and I hope that some of you will come along. You can keep tabs on the studio here and on social media for our new calendar of events in the new year.
For now, our 20% off sale will continue until our last day of business, so that you can stock up on Levigator Press gear and help me avoid having to pack and move it!
