Boxes are unpacked, presses assembled, and the letterpress cases back in their cabinets. We settled in and made ready to print. Unfortunately, 3 days after moving, we made the responsible decision to close the studio temporarily to members and public in response to the COVID 19 emergency.
Nova Scotia was one of the last Canadian provinces to see confirmed cases in mid March. Nova Scotia with a small but aging population has taken strong measures to contain the spread as to not overwhelm our already strained health care system. EGPs members are social distancing, and in some cases self isolating.
But, we are also creative folks and looking at ways to continue making prints and stay connected. Later this month we will be launching a newsletter. Stay in touch and check back for information on how to subscribe. Have patience, the newsletter team is working remotely from their homes.
Stay well, wash your hands and stay 2 metres (6 ft apart).
