Wed. ... Field Trip to Hartford Prints studio next door in the Real Art Ways (RAW) building just south door . It is only 1 block walk but still is a Field Trip ! We can walk there, probably about 7 PM . 56 Arbor St. if you are late. 2nd floor, I think. If locked out , try back door near RAW. Our fine printing neighbors are one of a few successful Hartford start-up biz. They are also the creators of the " Buy Local Love Hartford " and similar "Be Local " campaign for CT and local biz. Local !
Awesome printing , and modern local attitude. See their media , FB , and their retail store downtown on 42 Pratt St. downtown Hartford . Make Local ? Love Hartford .
Our friends at Hartford Prints! have invited the members (and guests) of MakeHartford to come see their letterpress in action. If you have been to their store or a recipient of a card, ticket, business card, invitation, or other item they have printed, you know it is something special. They use an old-fashioned method (invented in the 15th century, although their equipment is somewhat newer) of printing to create stunning modern designs.
We'll meet at MakeHartford and walk over to the Studio on the other side of the building. Enjoy a beverage, watch the ladies of Hartford Prints! create some items, and ask questions about the process.
