Words in Wood Letterpress Mini Workshop

June 20 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What words would you want to wake up and see as you start your day?

What quote is resonating with you at this particular moment in time?

Whether a favorite quote, catch-phrase or mantra, print your inspiring thoughts on paper using Hamilton’s vast collection of wood type and images.

In this workshop taught by Julie Chen, e bond, and Sharon Jue—Hamilton’s BIWOC (Black, Indigenous, Women of Color) Artists-in-Residence—students will create their own unique letterpress print along with the option to create a Turkish map fold artist book from their print.

This event is part of our BIWOC 2024 summit at the museum. Our Artists-in-Residence Julie Chen, e bond, and Sharon Jue will be on site for two weeks to print, offer a workshop and on-site gallery talk. This residency in our letterpress printing studio is being done to help empower marginalized voices and actively engage individuals from diverse backgrounds through demonstrations and workshops.
