As promised, here are the details regarding the Ligatures road trip to Don Black Linecasting in Scarborough.
Don Black has agreed to offer us a small tour of the facility, which will include: -showing how the Intertype and Ludlow casters work + a casting demo. -go over wood and metal type anatomy and other details. -show the different types of presses – maybe even set something up on the Canuck press and pull a proof of something to take home (set-up in advance).
Ligatures, along with the help of Tanya Roberts (Snap + Tumble letterpress), are currently looking for a group of 6 enthusiastic folks to join us on two evenings:
Friday, September 19, 6:30pm-7:30pm (AT CAPACITY) Friday, September 26, 6:30pm-7:30pm (AT CAPACITY)
If you are interested in attending, please send us an email and we will help arrange transportation. If you have access to a vehicle, please include a note about this in your reply, and how many folks you would be able to drive.
