Second Thursday Open Studio

Second Thursday Open Studio Second Sunday Show + Tell Calendar

Member Shop Orientation
It’s always difficult to start in a new shop and get your printing flow.  Different equipment, new people, and where the heck is the tarleton anyway?!  SSP wants to make it easier for you to get started and get printing.  Every Second Thursday, Second State Press we will hold shop orientations for members.  All are welcome to attend each month.

Visit Us Every Second Thursday of the Month.
Join us 6-9 PM to get a tour of the shop, have your printing questions answered, and meet other members.

FREE Demonstration

Held at Savery Gallery 319 North 11th Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19107

Discover the printmaking methods behind ‘Just a Moment’ – an expressive exhibition of new works by John D. Taylor – through a one hour drop-in workshop at SAVERY Gallery on Saturday December 19th from 3-4PM.

Second State Press and SAVERY Gallery are teaming up to present a live printing demonstration in which visitors can watch a woodblock go from initial design to carved relief, and even “pull” a print from one of our example blocks to experience and experiment with hand-printing from relief blocks. Get your hands a little dirty while taking in the percussive and improvisational works of “Just a Moment” – on view through January 2nd, 2016.
