Health and Safety Policies (As of September 10, 2021):
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 require mask wearing in all public spaces in the building.
Happy Hour studio sessions at Pyramid have the potential for close physical contact between participants. As part of our commitment to providing a safe work environment and reducing the potential exposure or transmission of Covid-19, we request that on the first day of class you provide either proof of vaccination or proof of recent negative Covid-19 test results (within 72 hrs). If you are unable to provide these documents, please contact the front desk for a health screening questionnaire. 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.
BOOKMAKING HAPPY HOUR
1st Thursdays, 7-9 pm. Join us for Bookmaking Happy Hour, an open studio where members can gather for discussions about book projects and receive advice and assistance on techniques as well as the use of the bindery equipment: paper guillotine, board shear, book presses (standing and backing), and the Kensol gold foil stamper.
No walk-ins please!
LETTERPRESS HAPPY HOUR
1st Wednesdays, 7-9 PM. Our vintage presses and antique type are ready for your project! Letterpress Happy Hour is the perfect opportunity for members to practice workshop skills while working on their own personal project. Hand set some type, ink up the press or just come to familiarize yourself with this tactile method of printmaking.
No walk-ins please!
Note: Membership and some experience with letterpress (i.e., a workshop) is required.
