St Bride plans virtual summer events
Tuesday, June 29, 2021
St Bride Foundation is planning a virtual Wayzgoose event for next month.
Due to the Covid-19 situation, the event will take place online via the St Bride Twitter and Instagram accounts.
The Wayzgoose date is Sunday 11 July, from 10am-1pm BST.
The foundation said: “We are inviting letterpress practitioners, printers, and associated trades to share their wares with us on the day using the #SBFWayzgoose.”
It is free to participate.
“Our aim is to celebrate the fantastic wealth of creativity, trade and craft within the letterpress and printing communities around the globe, with the St Bride Library and Print Workshop championing them at its heart.”
The following week an evening lecture will take place via Zoom, at 7pm BST on 12 July.
The title is ‘Letterpress in the Time of Covid’, and it will involve short 10 minute contributions by Ane Thon Knutsen, Ben Blount, Naomi Kent, Michelle Yu, New North Press, Peter Gibbons and Scott Cameron.
Tickets cost £3-£5 and can be booked here.
The foundation held its annual Wayzgoose in a virtual format for the first time last year.
