Fourth Fridays is tonight in downtown Guelph.  Our studio will be open from 7 -10pm at 123 Woolwich St. 3rd floor.  Check out the website to get current information about what is going on, when and where. Here are some photos of our November Fourth Fridays where we had a drop in card making workshop. Lots of wonderful things were made.
this is the Trafalgar Building at 123 Woolwich St. where there are lots of studios. we are on the third floor.

This month Lydia and I will be doing some block printing on the small book press. We were hoping to do some demonstrations on the etching press but a sad thing happened to me this week when I was pulling my first proof for a new edition. My press broke.  Really, really broke.  After almost 20 years of hard working, with lots of editions, workshops, renters, visitors and friends it just snapped. Right now I am looking for ways to fix it but it is looking like a big job.  The part that broke is probably the most important part and it is not a small one.  Any ideas, please let me know.
