Make + Take Fun!

Buy your ticket now! Friday, November 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. is our next Make + Take experience. Come for a chance to explore screenprinting, letterpress binding, book binding, and more! No prior experience is necessary, just your creative interest.

Children are encouraged to attend, and children under 12 are half price! There will be special activities for them, also.

To avoid the line and help us get started on time (and the line can get awfully cold this time of year!) register in advance on our website or at eventbrite.

This is an excellent chance to get started on your holiday gift making and buying. We'll have our annual letterpress calendar, handmade books, and prints available for sale. Zesty cocktails and sweets are included in the price of admission, which is only $10.00 for adults.

But most of all come out and have some fun, because it's time to get into the holiday spirit. We hope to see you there!

Glory be, those are some BIG GLOVES. Helene Baribeau's installation steals the show Autumn Colors, now on view in Takoma Park. Helene created the large sheets of handmade paper for her pieces at Pyramid during her 2012 keyholder residency.  She then hand carved each insect, and printed the dots on one of our large presses. Handprinting the bugs and sewing the gloves together were done in her home studio. Helene recently moved back to Colorado, but promises to visit often. At least to take off the gloves. Congratulations, Helene!
