Presented by Wells Book Arts Center and the American Printing History Association Upstate New York Chapter.
A celebration of Printing and the Book Arts featuring hands-on workshops and demonstrations, vendor fair, tours, exhibitions and food & libations!
A Wayzgoose is a celebration of printing, paper and book arts. Its name goes back to medieval times when the master printer would host a feast for his workers. Upstate New York state has not had a Wayzgoose event in many years and this annual event will bring the tradition back to this area as a celebration of the many artisans working in and around New York and beyond. This event is presented in partnership with the American Printing History Association Upstate New York Chapter.
