Capital Campaign Update
Roycroft Campus Acquired the Historic Print Shop in June 2015
With almost $1 million raised toward the purchase of the historic Print Shop, the Roycroft Campus took possession of the building in June of 2015.
Built in 1901, the 23,354 square foot Print Shop was the final location of the Roycroft printing operation. Now under Roycroft Campus Corporation ownership, the Print Shop will once again become the heart of the Campus where guests, in the spirit of the original Roycrofters, will have the opportunity to enjoy hands-on experiences. Visitors will be able to learn about the original purpose of the Roycroft Campus - writing, printing and illumination - through the recreation of an operating Press Room and Books Arts Center. The experience will be further enhanced through the use of original presses which are being returned to the Campus thanks to the generosity of a long-time collector. The building now provides space for artist studios, exhibits, demonstrations, and classrooms, as well as rental space for long-term tenants and special events.
