April 29 & 30 2017

11:00am to 4:00pm


Please join us for our thirteenth annual Wayzgoose, a community letterpress and book arts extravaganza. Meet local printers and view their wares, print your own keepsakes, make paper and bind books. A highlight of the weekend is steamroller printing, where local artists carve 3 x 3 foot sheets of linoleum and print on giant paper. Many thanks to the Tacoma Arts Commission and our sponsors and volunteers (join us here!)
