Here are some photos from last week's celebration of Pyramid's 31st birthday! Here was guests got to make in the letterpress studio, a fun greeting card to go along with the party's Olympics theme:
With your choice of Olympic-ring colored envelope!
Here's Lauren, Janine and Leslie finishing up with set up:
Some guests printing their cards with the help of our volunteers:
A couple shots of Erin manning the scoring station, where guests scored their cards and chose their envelopes:
And a photo of our Letterpress Marketplace where guests could check out and buy letterpress goodies made by various artists that use our studio (manned by the family Karlins!):
And here are some photos of the activities going on in the other studios!
In the Bindery, visitors selected a pre-made book cover:
And then got to sew the pages in and foil stamp them, with help from Bookmaking Associates Patty Lee and Linda Rollins:
Papermaking Associate Laura Kinneberg helped people make paper medals:
And in the Screenprint Studio, Associates Marty Ittner and Becca Katz helped everyone do two-color screenprinted bags to hold all the goodies from the other studios:
Thanks again to our awesome volunteers! Hope to see you at next year's party!
