For Current Members Only!
Join us for an evening with full access to the type shop! Letterpress Happy Hour is the perfect way for you to practice your type-setting and printing skills. A Letterpress Associate will be on hand to answer questions and offer guidance, but not to offer instruction. Press reservations are available on a first come, first served basis. Certification or recent letterpress experience (i.e., workshop participation) are required in addition to your RSVP. Press reservations are available on a first come, first served basis.
Happy Hour registrations close at noon the day of the session. To check about last minute openings/accommodations, call: 301-608-9101. No walk-ins will be accepted. If you are planning to print, remember to bring your own paper, including packing and test sheets.
Health and Safety Policy:
(Updated April 1, 2022): Pyramid values the health and wellbeing of our artists, teachers, students, staff, and visitors. At this time, we are choosing to remain more conservative than many local ordinances and continue to require mask wearing in all public spaces in the building.
Taking an in-person class at Pyramid has potential for close physical contact between students and teachers. As part of our commitment to providing a safe work environment and reducing the potential exposure or transmission of Covid-19, students participating in in-person workshops must provide 1) proof of an up-to-date vaccination status on the first day of class, including any booster dose(s) when eligible or 2) proof of recent negative Covid-19 test results (within 72 hrs). If you are unable to provide these documents when checking in for class, please contact the front desk for a health screening questionnaire.
The CDC has guidelines on what “up-to-date” means and Pyramid will follow those recommendations when checking vaccine cards. Please note that Pyramid does not keep health records on individuals and you will be asked to show your proof of vaccination at the start of each workshop. Pyramid will offer a full refund to anyone at any time if they feel unwell or that they may put others at risk of exposure. Please contact us with any additional questions or concerns.
