Tours of Central Print and The Firecracker Press' Old North location are scheduled by Central Print and available for groups of up to 25 participants.
Tours can be tailored to the participants’ area of interest (art prints, the letterpress process, evolution of fonts, or a certain period in print history).
All tours provide demonstrations of printmaking equipment in use, a detailed history of letterpress printing, and how the preservation of the historic printmaking equipment has relevance today. Pre-tour preparatory materials and follow-up activities are available for teachers upon request. Tours have one hour time slots allotted with 50 minutes of active guided discussion.
