September 17 | 12-2pm | In-Person | Bowne & Co. | Free
Kick off Climate Week NYC 2022 by making paper with the staff at Bowne & Co., Stationers outdoors on the cobblestones in front of 211 Water Street on Saturday, September 17. Led by Rob Wilson, Art Director and Operations Manager, this free, family-friendly workshop will teach you how to create sustainable materials for your own future art project.
Using scraps from Bowne & Co., we will recycle offcuts into new fully formed sheets of paper. Most papers are infinitely recyclable. This process uses a lot of household tools, and it is an activity you can use at home to reduce your own paper waste.
No registration needed. Stop in and spend the afternoon learning with us.

Bowne & Co.
Established in 1775, Bowne & Co. is New York’s oldest operating business under the same name. Using seven historic presses from the Museum’s working collection, our resident printers continue the age-old tradition of job (or small batch) printing, creating individual designs using custom plates or historic fonts.
