Introduction to Letterpress

Letterpress at BookArtsLa

In this one-day introduction to letterpress printing, you will learn the basic principles of typesetting, ink mixing, and of course, printing! Come with a two- to three- line phrase or poem and leave with a small edition of letterpress prints made by your own hand. Along the way, we’ll also share important background information about letterpress design and the history of printing.

Saturday, May 11 from 10 am to 4 pm

Fee: $155. We’ll provide all the supplies and materials you need, including paper. Enrollment is limited to 6 students.
