Want to find out what a Letterpress does?
Join the letterpress luddites! Go back in time and maybe even set a line of lead type. Think before computers, before digitalization. Watch the press in action and explore the kinds of things that can be printed with this press.
Joyce Majiski and a group of printers will have the Universal lll Vandercook letterpress running for a few days of printing type and images at Tuktu Studio in Golden Horn. The Yukon’s only Solar powered Vandercook.

I’ve been a printmaker and papermaker since 1986~when I took my first courses in Mexico and have subsequently travelled world wide to attend residencies and exhibit my work. My artwork is influenced by past careers as a biologist and wilderness guide in the north. My work examines connection to place within a context of global environmental concerns. A Yukon resident since 1984, my first solo exhibition was at the Log skyscrapers (former home of the Arts Society) in 1987.
