Today we say ‘hello’ and welcome to our winter 2018 batch of interns. This week, they’ll assist us with bookbinding at King Westwood elementary and also help paint the new walls in our gallery. Then it’s on to binding their very first book which will serve as their intern notebook over the course of the semester.

Did you ever notice this Hickok standing press tucked away in our gallery? Now, it’s almost become the centerpiece of our gallery after having been moved during construction. I wonder where it will go now 🤔
Lookie lookie at the beginnings of the new walls for our gallery! So excited! 😆

Our 2018 class schedule is up! Instead of being cooped up in the house all winter, why not come down and learn a new skill or expand on one you already have? Learn papermaking techniques, letterpress printing, paper marbling, various book structures and more! Link in bio 👆

What’s your New Year’s resolution for 2018? One of ours is to experiment with different fibers for papermaking. A couple months ago we transformed husks from locally grown corn into beautiful large sheets of paper using our laid mould. What do you have in store for 2018?

What a great week at Woodward! Spirit week brought stuffed animal day, green day (school color), pajama day, mismatch day, hat day and LOTS of fun activities! Staff and students are off on a much deserved (and needed) break. Read lots of book over break, relax and rejuvenate. Best team in town.
