Come visit us at the Grove this holiday season! We will be there at the studio with our cards to sell and demonstrations in letterpress printing.
A lot has happened in 2021 and there is more to come in 2022. We opened at our new location at Poplar Grove with a visit from a Kickstarter Project called: “The Summer of Moveable Type”. We held several classes in Typography and Printing, took our press to UNCW campus to demonstrate letterpress printing to Ned Irvine’s
art class and welcomed several elementary school classes at the studio for a presentation of type and printing. Enjoy the images and we look forward to expanding our studio with several new presses.
Ollie and I spent the afternoon with students in Ned Irvine’s Typography Class at UNCW. We demonstrated the Kelsey 5×8 press while students got to set type and print on the Kelsey. We got great feedback from all the attendees as well as Professor Irvine. We look forward to future events on campus.
We are going to become an artist and residence at Poplar Grove Plantation. You can join us with blacksmithing and basket weaving as well as learn about the life of a peanut plantation owner here in North Carolina. Our opening date at the new location is scheduled for June 30th 2021 and we will share in the celebration with The Mobil Printshop a Kickstarter Project.
