In this two day letterpress class students will learn the basics of hand typesetting, letterpress terminology, fundamentals of letterpress printing as well as what to look for and how to achieve a good final print. We will complete two projects, the first being a collaborative, group print as we gain a feel for the process. Each student will take the knowledge they have learned to complete the second project, a folded greeting card of their design. Each student will leave with a minimum of 12 greeting cards.

Prerequisite:none required – an enthusiasm for letterpress!
