Jacquie Sullivan (Jacquie Prints) - I began learning about letterpress printing in the fall of 2020, teaching myself using a small tabletop printing press in my basement. This will be my second year providing a letterpress demonstration for Culture Days at the Scugog Arts Space in Port Perry, Ontario.

This event is a part of the Ontario Culture Days Regional Hub Program.
