About "The Village Goose"

Who I am...




















I am Kay Hodges aka The Village Goose. I make art pieces from vintage & antique letterpress and printer blocks. It is amazing to use this beautiful, old history to create one-of-a-kind heirlooms. Can I make one for you?












What I do....
















I express my passion for wood type letterpress by creating collages, word groups & other art forms. The beautiful patinas, fonts & sizes help save this amazing history. I use orphan type & printer blocks making each one unique. I am blessed to work with this great medium.

LETTERPRESS PARTY 

You can host a letterpress party at my home in Elk Grove in the evening or on a weekend afternoon. It is fun to share the history, make gifts or home decor and enjoy the company of friends, family and refreshments. In most cases, you take your creations home the same day/night! A great way to do some unique Christmas shopping, even for the most finicky person!

I have 1000's of these printer blocks!

These printer blocks were used to illustrate or advertise produce many years ago. Most of the blocks are over 100 years old! It's amazing how these old blocks still work in our lives today!

Village Goose News!

I will be taking some time off from shows in the beginning of 2018. I will continue to work from my garage for any order needed or anyone who would like to come by. I am still doing letterpress parties! My family has a busy schedule for awhile, so this will help balance my life :) I would like to thank all my wonderful customers who I consider "letterpress friends", my family and other friends for all the support and help when I've really  needed it! I can't believe it has been over 5 years!! I hope this is a short modified leg in this amazing letterpress journey.

Many customers have asked about getting a custom stamp made. They will create your own rubber stamp! Extremely nice to work with! Give them a call or stop by!
