ABOUT THE COMMUNITY PRINT CENTER:
As many of you
know, I have been involved in developing a cooperative print center on
the San Francisco Peninsula uniquely outfitted to offer presses and
equipment to letterpress printers (and those who would like to be) who
need access to a clean, well lighted place to print, and a community of
people who can help each other learn, grow and create !
is to have a membership based cooperative center with 24/7 access to a
fully outfitted letterpress shop. Classes will also be offered in beginning and advanced
letterpress and relief printing techniques.
I have moved some
"light stuff" into the new studio space, including an 1880s 5x8 treadle operated Golding Pearl
press, a Morgan flat bed press, a 5x8 Craftsmen press, and more....for display at this Grand Opening.
With enough interest
and support, we can continue to develop it into a fully outfitted shop
with larger presses that are waiting in the wings ready to
move in once we have enough interest and participation ( Two 8x12
C&P platen presses, a Vandercook proof press, hundreds of cases of
type, a huge paper cutter, etc.)This Saturday
will be a perfect opportunity to check out the Community Print Center space (Studio #10),
ask me questions, and let me know if you are interested in either
supporting or participating in this endeavor.
And finally, here are a couple of links to tell you more about the museum, art institute and Grand Opening:
Hope to see you there TODAY!
