Event Description

The Palace Press, a working exhibition of our printed past and present, will work with Boy Scouts from around New Mexico in a hands-on workshop for a merit badge in the Graphic Arts. Besides printing, participants will tour the Print Shop, visit the museum and make old-fashioned printer’s hats. Sessions are at 10am-noon and 1:30-3:30pm. Space is limited and reservations are required. Contact Melanie LaBorwit at Melanie.laborwit@state.nm.us or 505-476-5044.
