This workshop covers the fundamentals of letterpress printing. It focuses on hand setting type, the basics of laying out a forme, and the operation of platen and bed presses. Students can expect to spend time learning the vocabulary of printing and the layout of the printshop, as well as produce a one-color greeting card, business card or poster. It is helpful to bring along a short quote or idea of something you'd like to create! For all artistic levels, Ages 16+
