About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Over the last decade, letterpress printing has enjoyed a resurgence among artists and writers alike for its beautiful look and craftsmanship. For hundreds of years this process was used for mass communication- people handset movable type and images and printed them to paper. Gain working knowledge on how to set and print type and hand-made images on our historic hand press and large poster press. Participants will leave class with small or large editions of books, business cards, posters, broadsides, or whatever you dream up.

Price includes a $30 studio and materials fee which is non-refundable after class begins. Get list online for additional needed materials.
