Curious about letterpress printing? This workshop is ideal for someone interested in learning some of the basics and getting hands-on experience on one of our Vandercook presses. In this 4 hour workshop, you will print a small custom broadside using our beautiful collection of wood and metal type. You have the opportunity to combine vintage imagery with typography to bring it alive or possibly give it a twist!

In this beginner class, our team of friendly and dedicated instructors will guide you through the process of good presswork, inking and impression. Walk away with a basic understanding of letterpress printing and a little about its rich history.

Learn:

  • Safety procedures
  • How to properly set wood and metal type.
  • Hands on experience with one of our Vandercook letterpresses.
  • Letterpress history and printing basics.

You will take home 15 copies of your custom broadside.

**Please note: The classes are capped at 12 students and require a minimum of 6 to run. If the class should not fill up you will be notified in advance and a full refund will be issued.

We are offering this same class on October 6th if this date does not accommodate you.
