Event Details

LETTERPRESS WORKSHOP AT THE GROVE STREET PRESS

Cousins Kate and Anna, owners of the Grove Street Press, are inviting us into their print shop in the Warehouse District for a letterpress workshop! They will be teaching the basics of the letterpress process and giving one-on-one demos at the presses as a part of an evening of food, drink and merriment. 
 
Come chat with other creative types, learn about letterpress, sip on sangria, grab a slice of St. Clair Wood Fired Pizza + walk away with your very own letterpress print! Kaylynn Marie will be there to photograph all of the fun!
 
Thursday, June 26, 2014 • 6-9 pm
The Grove Street Press, 521 Saint Joseph Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130
 

Kate will give a brief presentation on the history of printing and their efforts to keep the historic craft alive in the 21st century, which will be followed by a brief demonstration of printing techniques. Everyone will have an up-close look at their antique machinery (including a 110 year old guillotine paper cutter!) and be able to ask Kate and Anna any questions about their process — from design, to ink-mixing, to press-oiling.

Each guest will then take a turn at either the 70 year-old, Chandler & Price platen press, or the rare Vandercook SP-15 to learn its mechanics and print a souvenir to take home.
