North Andover, MA -- Paul Moxon will hold a Vandercook Maintenance Workshop at The Museum of Printing in North Andover, Mass. on Saturday and Sunday, May 2nd and 3rd.

The workshop is limited to 10 people at $200 for each registrant for this 2-day event.

“There is a virtual renaissance in letterpress printing,” said William Whitley, Museum of Printing vice president  and Manufacturing & Production Director at the Christian Science Publishing Society. “Vandercook presses are very popular and there is a need for information on using and maintaining them.”

Learn all the points of maintenance, lubrication, and cleaning and become familiar with the differences between models.
