The Print Shop
In 1995, antique printing equipment—linotype and letter press—was donated to Raven Hill, along with drawers of type. The Print Shop was built to house the equipment. The machinery is in working order and now on display behind the new Observation Wall, which keeps visitors safe and the machines dust-free. For the past few years, the Print Shop area was used for glass and metal classes. Most glass classes are now taught in the Main Museum building. The metal work is getting moved to its new location in the Work Shops, so that there will soon be a dedicated Wood Shop, Metal Shop and Print Shop. The smaller tabletop press, litho press and other equipment will be out in the hands-on classroom area of the Print Shop for both historical and artistic printing applications! Many thanks to the Baiardi Family Foundation for their support in building the Observation Wall.
