Clawhammer Press is the only Letterpress shop in Western Canada that operates in full view of the public. Visitors and questions are welcome.
The print shop features several traditional print presses:
The gallery specializes in fine art typographical posters and paper products including business cards, coasters, stationery and more. Mike Hepher, the print master, is also a fine art painter and prepares many of his printed artworks from hand-carved wood and lino-blocks.
Clawhammer Press is open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays. The studio shares a space with Angela Morgan, a fine art painter whose work is known throughout Canada. A large gallery space displays Mike and Angela's work and is available for purchase and viewing. During the week, the space is a closed, working, art gallery. Clawhammer Press artwork is available to purchase at other retail spaces in Fernie - inquire for more information.
