Idlewild Press, relocation 2010
Dorian, inspired by the TV show ‘Monster Moves’, suggested the following plan for the move between the old and new studios:
Move the Nicholas Building to Collingwood. Unload the presses. Return the NB to the CBD.
And this is (almost) how it happened.
There’s a story to be told, but in the meantime, I am looking for an extra pair of hands. I need someone who can work with me on Mondays for four weeks to help me set up the new studio. You’ll be helping me shift and unpack boxes, distribute type*, organise samples and paper stock. In exchange, you’ll have a place in one of my weekend workshops, where you’ll print a project of your own. E-mail me if this sounds of interest, and tell me a little bit about yourself. Ideally, you’d start September 27.
The new studio is in The Compound Interest Centre for The Applied Arts, 15-25 Keele Street, Collingwood, in a double-wide, saw-toothed factory set to be tenanted by some very talented people. I am very lucky and excited to be included among them.
*Unfortunately, there was a small accident during the move, resulting in a galley of pied type.
