Presswork Holiday Open House

As UVA’s fall semester draws to a close, RBS-UVA Presswork Fellows will host a holiday open house on Saturday, 7 December 2019, from 2–4 pm. The event will celebrate the history of hand-press printing, and will make use of the historical replica printing presses in the South Gallery of the Mary and David Harrison Institute/Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library located on UVA’s Central Grounds. All are welcome to join us for seasonally inspired refreshments, and to come and print a keepsake of a wintry poem on the common press, as well as a snowflake impression on the rolling press.
This event is sponsored by the Jefferson Trust, an initiative of UVA’s Alumni Association.
