This one-day 5-hour course will provide participants with the basic knowledge and hands-on experience to start them on the path to letterpress proficiency. We will briefly cover all the bits, pieces and nomenclature of this hundreds-of-years-old printing tradition, including type, spacing and the styles of presses. Students will then design, prepare and print their own small letterpress project, and conclude by distributing their type and tidying the shop.

Students will receive a printed guide to letterpress and the materials needed to produce their project. Upon completion of this course students will be able to arrange Supervised Printing at the Brickyard Collaborative Book Arts studio, and are eligible to take the Intermediate Letterpress class.
