Looking for experienced Vandercook printers, to teach hands-on workshops in Port Richmond, Philadelphia– off of a Vandercook No. 3 Proof Press. I am not quite ready to teach, but want to use the studio & equipment– for classes.
I would love to begin as soon as late February. Please be in touch, as proceeds from classes will be shared.
Thanks all. I’ll be in touch. Paul-would definately love to attend the Vandy Maintenance workshop, and do hope to meet you! Ray- the workshop would be for 7-10 others.. approx 6 hrs, w/ an hr of basic introduction, & then hands-on typesetting, inking, printing and clean-up. A light meal would be served as well.. w/ $80-100/ sliding scale cost. 30% would go toward the teacher. I have a local printer that has expressed interest, but still want to connect w/ you all–and perhaps (if you are interested) see if we can work together for the first 3-4 months. And once I gain a clear enough understanding of it all, then I would teach..
I also have a 1903 Golding Platen Press- (handed down from a local printer that passed away last year)- that I would LOVE to learn and teach from. Reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further. Warmest)) ! Aimee
We are in Newark, Delaware. I’m not sure we have time in February with our own workshops and the like, but when you get closer to the time we may be able to help out.
Might help to explain more thoroughly what it is that you want. Is this a workshop for just you to learn your equipment. Are there others that would be attending? Money?
Are you planning on regular workshops or just a few?
I’m in Baltimore and might be interested.
Contact Marisha Simons at University of the Arts , perhaps she can help. Btw: I will be teaching my Vandercook Maintenance workshop at the Center for Book Arts in New York, April 30-May 1 http://centerforbookarts.org. CBA may be able to help if you can’t find someone in Philly.
