Bowne Printers Workshop
At Bowne Printers

This three-and-a-half-hour workshop introduces participants to typesetting and letterpress printing small runs of custom work. Students choose from a selection of the Museum’s vintage lead type to design their own personalized stationery. Our team of printers guide participants through the process of setting type, proofing on our Vandercook cylinder press, fine-tuning designs, and printing a final run on our 19th-century tabletop platen press. Participants learn how to operate the presses themselves, and each person goes home with twenty-five personal stationery items. Cancellation: If fewer than 2 tickets are sold by the Wednesday prior, the workshop will be canceled. Box-office closes at program start unless event is canceled.
