Planning & Printing Workshop at Hamilton on May 20

Join us at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin on May 20, 2017 for a day-long letterpress printing workshop where we will work together to make your printing process smooth as silk. We will discuss planning a print from start to finish, setting type, ink mixing, and a variety of printing techniques, from traditional techniques to more exploratory methods. These tips and tricks will be put to good use as workshop participants create posters on the Showcard Presses in the pressroom. After the workshop you will have new skills to take back to your own print shop.

The cost is $125 per person with the museum providing materials and tools. No experience with letterpress printing is necessary. Space is limited, so sign up early.
