snowed in?

is a pretty popular question these days. It is February in eastern Canada and the snow banks are over our heads.  Despite all that nature has throw at us, EGPC is staying toasty and busy.

Three new members joined in January bringing core membership up to 11. With an assorted range of experience and interests,  it is going to be curious what 2015 brings in way of workshops and projects.  Already we have been experimenting with copper sulphate etching on zinc and had a visit from letterpress artist,  Laura MacDonald of Deep Hollow Print.  She began her career using a Nolan Press similar to the one in the shop.  Tentative plans are in the making for a workshop with Laura. Time to get serious about using our letterpress equipment.

After the success of 2014 Box set Fire fundraiser. (we sold out at 25 sets)  we installed an air filter system in the studio improving air quality.  EGPC is committed to being as green and replacing traditionally used solvents with lower toxic substitutes whenever possible.

Our next planned event is a Spring Open House for the public in April.  Something to look forward to…
