So after your trip to NYC for the IFPDA & E/AB Fairs, there’s another Printmaking event this weekend.

Type Truck, a project by Kyle Durrie of Power & Light Press in Portland, OR will be in Baltimore all weekend long. She’s doing an event with AVAM downtown on Saturday, and then stopping in at Baltimore Print Studios on Sunday from 1-5 PM.

Kyle Durrie of Power & Light Press in Portland, OR set out this past June in a 1982 Chevy Step Van outfitted with a fully functional letterpress shop inside. Five months and 12,000+ miles later, she’s finally arriving in Baltimore this weekend! Kyle’s tour has taken her coast-to-coast, visiting as many places as possible, giving workshops, demos and printing with people almost every day.

This Sunday’s event at Baltimore Print Studios will let you create a letterpress and screenprinted print – a collaboration between Type Truck, BPS, and you. Come pull screenprints with us and then letterpress print with Type Truck. This event is hands-on, completely free, and open to everyone. If you have never printed before and want to get your hands a little dirty, this is for you.

Please stop by, say hello and meet Kyle, and pull some prints.
