Workshops are taught on a Vandercook Universal I, Vandercook Universal III, or a Showcard DFS.
Students will learn the basics of letterpress printing through demonstrations and hands-on experience. Letterpress printing is ideal for creating broadsides, posters, cards, and invitations. Using our wide array of lead and wood type and engraved imagery, students will explore composition, typography, and color.
Please come prepared with your ideas, so that you may most efficiently utilize press time in class. You will have the opportunity to do two or more of your own personal projects, depending upon the complexity and size of the print run of each project.
The cost of a workshop is $150.00 per person on a Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. We supply the presses, paper, and ink.
