DIY Cards: Letterpress
Join us for this fun, social workshop to see what letterpress printing is all about. During this workshop, you’ll be able to design and print your own greeting cards using vintage type and traditional printing presses. The rich, tactile quality of ink pressed into paper will leave an impression on the lucky recipients of your handmade cards!
Each attendee will be able to choose from a variety of fonts in our collection. With these fonts, they will learn how to set and print their own short saying, phrase, or statement to create a professional and one-of-a-kind set of cards. Our Teaching Artist will share what moveable type is, how it works, why it’s so special, and how its invention changed the world.
This one-day workshop combines an overview of letterpress printing and its unique history with hands on making. It is a great way to try out a new craft and find out if you would love to learn the full process. Our studio will provide each participant with 15 fold-over cards with matching envelops.
Please note: Enrollment is limited to 5 students to ensure social distancing. Students will be expected to disinfect shared resources after use and follow all our Covid-related safety precautions. The class fees cover tuition as well as consumable studio supplies
