OPEN HOUSE : studio tour of Lead Graffiti

 

History buffs, students, writers, anarchists, teachers, designers, artists, and kids will enjoy a free tour of our modern working historical letterpress studio. See and hear the clanking & clacking of our platen & cylinder presses, paper cutters & board shears, paper drill & perforator, hot metal linecaster, and other antique printing production marvels. We'll share our love of typography and show favorite examples of classical and contemporary creative items, including colorful posters, fine press books, wedding invitations, and commercial work. See samples from our workshops where people ages 8 and better have put their hands and heads to work via letterpress. There's plenty of eureka moments and ahas!  to share.

Remember, it is free. Bring questions, your camera, a friend, and boost the creative part of your brain a bit.

We are happy to schedule a free tour for any group or organizations of 6 to 18 people at your convenience. The tour can also be tailored to cover your specific topics of interest. To discuss options, email Ray Nichols.

Look at our workshop and events calendar.  Suggest a date (maybe 2 just in case).  Suggest a time. Late afternoons (after 3:30) and evenings are typically better when the parking lot is more open, if you expect a lot of cars. Define your group and its interest for us and we’ll try to target the discussion.
