Now is the Time

We began publishing and working in Fort Collins in 2003. Now, ten years later, we’re embarking on our craziest, loftiest goal yet: to raise at least $25,000 in order to renovate a building into a letterpress print shop and community space devoted to craft.

Once renovated, the new space will be anchored by a letterpress print shop for Wolverine Farm publications, community collaborations, and commercial work. Another local press, Oak Root Press owned by John Major Jenkins, has generously loaned a variety of letterpress equipment, in addition to other pieces WFP owns, to form a complete print shop. WFP intends to work with more local authors and artists utilizing the best of letterpress and digital technology. The new space will include a retail shop for local makers and artisans, and will feature literary, craft and art workshops for adults and children.

Additionally, the space will feature local coffee, beer, and food for public and private events and community outreach programs. A revolving bicycle exhibit will feature the impressive collection of longtime Boneshaker cover artist and local bicycle guru Jeff Nye.  We anticipate interesting collaborations as we gradually increase our bicycle-related publications and print ephemera.
