LionPress

Field trip!

This past Wednesday the Lion team took a trip to Williamsburg to participate in a letterpress workshop at The Arm Letterpress.

The Arm is a great space with multiple letterpresses that is open for public use, just make a reservation.

We were shown the ropes and given a really interesting overview by 5th generation printer Dan Morris, ably assisted by Henry, the dalmation.
