Basic Letterpress Workshop May 19, 2018

This one-day course will introduce you to the terminology, tools, and basics of letterpress. You will learn about furniture, spacing, leading, chases and quoins. Set wooden or metal type, make up a form with type and cuts, and print your job on one of the presses in the Museum’s Letterpress Studio. A small lunch will be provided.

Members $75, non-members $95.   Register here >

As the year progresses, we’ll add more classes to the schedule including another Basic Letterpress class in September, printing on a lithography press, and others. Stay tuned. . . .
