This weekend is the 2015
Upstate NY Spring Wayzgoose
Saturday May 9, 2015 at 11am-5pm.

Wells Book Arts Center and the American Printing History Association Upstate New York Chapter are hosting the Wayzgoose at Wells College in Aurora, New York.

It is a celebration of printing and the book arts featuring hands-on workshops, demonstrations, vendor fair, tours, exhibitions, food & libations!

A Wayzgoose is a celebration of printing, paper and book arts. Its name goes back to medieval times when the master printer would host a feast for his workers.
Upstate New York state has not had a Wayzgoose event in many years and this annual event will bring the tradition back to this area as a celebration of the many artisans working in and around New York and beyond.
