Printmaking with the Printing Press

Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 6:30 – 8:30PM

General Public: $25
MakeHaven Members: $20

Ready to try out this cool printing press? Bring a carved wood or linoleum block if you have one, or use a sample block & type provided by our instructor! Learn to pull pull your own prints using the Chandler & Price press. The advantages of using a press over hand-printing are:

  • the press can deliver much more pressure which helps achieve a more consistent ink distribution across the print
  • registration for placement on the page and for printing multiple colors becomes much easier
  • printing editions (a series of identical copies) becomes possible.

Printing ink and enough paper for each participant to make an edition of at least 5 prints will be provided for the workshop by MakeHaven.

This class is taught by artist Michael Angelis.

Connecticut boasts some of the most distinctive architecture in New England, from Colonial churches and Modernist houses to refurbished nineteenth-century factories. Together, these buildings tell the stories of those who made our cities, towns and farms. They form a shared history that brings communities together.
In his talk at the New Haven Free Public Library, Christopher Wigren will highlight some of the 100 Connecticut places featured in his book, Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places, and the people who built or inhabited them. For this talk, he will focus on sites in or near New Haven as important elements of our diverse local heritage.
An architectural historian and Deputy Director of the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, Christopher Wigren has written articles and essays for the Hartford Courant, the New Haven Register, and Connecticut Explored magazine.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing after the talk.

Custom “Lily Pad” Jewelry

Shown: 7.5″ stretch bracelet by Arpaia with goldtone lily pad beads & luminous white baby potato-shaped cultured freshwater pearls. $115 special price for Newsletter Members with free USPS First Class shipping to any domestic US location & complimentary gift wrap upon request.

Above bracelet style can be made smaller or larger. In lieu of stretch elastic, bracelet adornments can be strung on gold-plated stainless steel wire with clasp of choice. Custom pricing applies.

Years ago, I lucked upon an extremely limited quantity of these lovely gold-plated beads in a contoured lily pad motif with brushed finish on both sides. These beads are hollow yet very strong for lightweight comfort and durable wear.

Now, finally, I am incorporating these smashing beads in custom-made earrings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets paired with pearls, glass and colored gemstones. I have a vast inventory of adornments to select from ~ simply let me know your wishes, and I will design a lily pad creation just for you. Arpaia custom jewelry is always 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Supple drape for comfortable wear.

Arpaia stretch bracelets are flexibly designed for beauty and to loosely conform to wrist contours. Supple drape is essential for slip-on ease and comfortable wear.
