Blurb + Mohawk #PulptoPrint: Part 2


In our last Felt & Wire post, we introduced a special event we recently hosted at Mohawk with our friends from Blurb, called #PulptoPrint.

The Pulp to Print retreat featured two days of inspiration by way of tours, exhibits, discussion and the sharing of ideas and work among a group of very creative individuals: academics, artists, photographers, writers, designers – all who value the contribution that fine paper brings to printed projects.
