Our annual Holiday Card Workshop is approaching! The event will be held on the 6th and 7th of December, both days from 1-5 pm. The cost is $10.00 and will be hosted by faculty and students in the Book Arts Center.
Participants will letterpress print 6 holiday-themed cards on our Vandercook presses. We will have cookies, hot chocolate, and holiday music for a festive atmosphere! We will also hold a holiday sale including blank books, prints, and additional cards.
We’d love for you to join us in Morgan Hall on the first floor. Please indicate your interest or any questions by sending a contact form below.
Last Saturday we opened up Morgan Hall for the Wells community to print greeting cards on our presses. Music filled the air, as did the scent of apples and cinnamon. It was the most wonderful day in the print shop!

Here are some of the cards and matrices that we printed from.
Since Odd/Even Season was approaching, we set up some spirited cards as well! These cards are lyrics sung by odds and evens during the sing off and basketball game at Wells. The odd team even put on a special performance in the type shop! You ladies rock! Here is some more information about odd/even and other Wells traditions on the Wells website.
We will be hosting more printing and book arts events later on in the semester, so if you missed this one, do not worry!
