Accessing Common Press
Common Press exists to support teaching and learning across the University of Pennsylvania, and to facilitate collaboration across the university and beyond. Common Press is available to members of the University of Pennsylvania community (students, faculty, and staff), and occasionally the wider community, in several ways.
Common Press provides curricular support by hosting tours, demonstrations, and classroom projects for Penn courses. If you are leading a class and are interested in utilizing Common Press, please submit a Class Visit Form to begin a discussion about how we might support your course.
Common Press facilitates creative projects incorporating print and book media, for both the Penn community and visiting artists and scholars. We invite your project proposals via the Project Inquiry Form.
We also hold Letterpress Orientations, Book Arts Workshops, and Open Studio Hours for Penn students, faculty, and staff. In order to work on letterpress projects during Open Studio Hours, you must complete a Letterpress Orientation. View our schedule of upcoming events.
Occasionally, special workshops, open houses, and residency opportunities are open to the broader community. Email Studio Manager Mary Tasillo at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive notification of these opportunities.
