Globe Letterpress Workshop at Hamilton on Nov 18

Join us at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin on Saturday, November 18, 2017 for a day-long letterpress printing workshop using blocks from the “Globe Collection” at the museum. Dating mostly from the mid-20th-century, the Globe Printing collection includes many pieces of handmade type and illustrations. This workshop will unveil a few highlights from the collection and allow participants to work with vintage blocks rarely seen and not often printed at the museum. Join us, even if you have never printed, you will become familiarized with type composition, locking up and printing on sign presses. The day starts off with a 45 minute tour of the museum and instruction on using a sign press. The majority of the workshop consists of printing with wood type from the large collection available in the pressroom at the museum. Each participant will get to design and print at their own workstation. The workshop runs from 9 am until 5 pm and the cost is $125 per person with the museum providing all the tools and materials that are needed. Join us to create something truly unique! You do not need any experience to take this class. Space is limited, so sign up early.
