In this introduction to letterpress printing workshop, students will learn the basics of setting type and hand-feeding on our antique cylinder press to produce an edition of 20 11” x 17” typography prints of their own design on heavy cotton paper (e.g. family motto, favorite movie quote, poignant song lyric, important saying, etc). This workshop is designed for one student per press, and one-on-one instruction will be given for using our collection of antique wood type, makeready, setting your form, registering, and pulling your own prints. This is a really fun workshop for beginners if you need a break from your normal routine and want to get your hands dirty, if you want to create a personal gift for your family and friends, or just want to learn more about the world of letterpress.
