I Miss Your Face

September 3, 2013

Last Thursday, the semester kicked off with a strong start at Wells College. There was singing around the Sycamore, lighting candles outside Macmillan, and a general sense of excitement with students screaming when they saw each other after the long summer break.

The Book Arts Center was bustling with organizing fresh supplies, cleaning, and finishing the greenhouse. Thanks so much to the efforts of Amanda Kelly and crew who worked so hard in the sun! Click here to see the story!

The courses being offered this fall include Letterpress Printing with Michael Bixler, Calligraphy with Barbara Galli, Bookbinding I, and Art on the Press with Laura Rowley.

In a few weeks, we will host our first event at Morgan: card printing on Vandercook presses! It is free for all to join on Saturday, September 21 any time from 1-6 p.m. Participants will print various greeting cards from metal and wood type, and metal cuts from the Wells collection. It is sure to be a fun and productive day, so bring a friend along! Send any questions to lrowley@wells.edu.

The flyers were letterpress printed and feature phrases that will be used in the workshop.
