The Itinerant Printer @ Striped Light

We are very excited to be hosting an Open Studio//Meet & Greet//Pop-Up Shop with The Itinerant Printer (Chris Fritton) Friday, March 11th from 6:00-9:00pm. He'll be showing off experimental prints from his cross-country letterpress adventure, as well as inviting participants to print pieces in a hands-on demonstration.

Fritton has been on tour visiting letterpress print shops across the country since January 2015, and to date he's logged more than 30,000 miles and over 15,000 prints. Come hear the stories, see what he's been working on while on the East Coast, and pick up a print or poster from the journey to take home!

This event is completely FREE and open to the public! Come check out a print shop right in your own backyard. Feel free to invite all your friends and cohorts as well. This event will be run in conjunction with Striped Light's "Microfiction: Six Word Stories - Letterpress Basics" Workshop.

Looks Good on Paper Party - 2 Day Event!

Striped Light is hosting the "Looks good on paper" Party. A Show & Tell & Sell social-mixer with local and regional artist and crafts people who use "PAPER" as the main ingredient in their work. It will be a two-day event: Friday the 9th of October from 5pm-9pm, and Saturday October 10th from 10am-1pm.

All types of creators are invited; Printmakers, Illustrators, Bookmakers, Puppeteers, specialists making hand-made paper and hopefully so many more. Participants will each set up a micro-booth ((the size of a classic square card table)).

Friday night will serve as an opening reception/cheese and cracker soiree to showcase the displays of everyone's work. Saturday will of course still have the great displays, but there will also be a series of book binding and printmaking demonstrations.

Participants include:

Native Maps : http://www.nativemaps.us/

Pioneer House : http://www.pioneer-house.com/

Knoxville Book Arts Guild

and many more!
