What you'll learn in this letterpress class:

In this one day letterpress workshop, you will learn to print on the Vandercook and Chandler & Price Pilot Press. Those who attend will be qualified to book press time during our open studio hours.

We believe in learning by doing- your class time will be spent setting wood type, mixing ink, printing from photopolymer plates and running the presses. Everyone will leave with samples of work they printed as well as a wood type poster of their own design.

This workshop is the perfect place to start if you would like to gain the skills to print your stationery, business cards, wedding invitations, posters and greeting cards.

Students should wear closed toe shoes. Anyone with long hair should bring a hair tie.

Question from Julianna C.
Hello! I noticed there is another class listing that had "beginner" in the title of the class, but that one hasn't had class dates posted, whereas this one does and does have "beginner" in the description. Want to make sure that this class would definitely be suitable for myself as a beginner before I sign up! Thanks so much!

Dan and this class are great! The class size of 7 was a perfect size, and the only thing that I wish was different is that I prepared something like a quote / idea ahead of time so that I could focus more on the layout and process.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 1/7/2019
Dan was extremely patient and guided us through using the Vandercook press. I felt pretty confident that I could use it when I book time at the press in the future. The class did end an hour and a half earlier, so it was 4.5 hours instead of the 6 that I paid for. Would have loved to have had different projects to work on to fill up the class time.
