Maple House Fellowships

Maple House Fellows
Maple House Fellows Allison Quam, left, and Betsy Wheeler work the Vandercook-4.
Maple House Fellowships are an opportunity for young printers to work at Sutton Hoo Press and learn the craft and trade of literary fine press printing, book design, and editing. Fellows assist the director with SHP projects and shop management, and earn time at the press to produce their own projects. They are tutored as they work and introduced to other members of the book community. Fellows take residence at the press and are sometimes offered a small stipend. Prospective fellows would be familiar with the press, its publications and mission, and would have pre-fellowship experience working in letterpress. There is no application process. After Fall 2004, the Maple House Fellowship will be called the Alpenhouse Fellowship as the press takes up its new location in the woods of the Stockton Valley in Minnesota.
