Private Workshops & Field Trips
We can accommodate up to 10 participants at a time, or split a larger group into two groups, touring one around Lowe Mill while the others print. Each session may take 1-3 hours, depending upon the project and number of participants. We require a minimum of 6 participants to schedule a private session.
- $15 per person: A single 1-color design for entire group. Participants may bring up to two items each to print. We will demonstrate and explain the entire process, but will have the image screen prepared ahead of time, and students will print their own t-shirts (or other items).
- $30 per person: Each participant creates an individual 1-color design and may bring up to 4 items to print. Participants will pair up to expose and wash out their own screens, then set them up on the press to print their individual image on their own items.
Letterpress - $125 per group (up to 10)
We will cover some of the history of the printing press, explain and demonstrate the process, terms, and materials used to create a print from beginning to end, and allow each participant to make a couple of prints by loading the paper and turning the flywheel by hand. We usually print a postcard, stationary, or mini-poster for a keepsake, and we can collaborate with you for the text or theme. (The press will be set ahead of time, as the setup can sometimes take hours.) We supply rubber stamps and other materials for participants to embellish and personalize after printing if they wish, and to keep students entertained while waiting for their peers to finish.
