Intro to Letterpress: Business Cards
February 3, 2018
February 3, Saturday, 10 am-4 pm
Curious about letterpress but not sure if it’s up your alley? Come to this one-day workshop and get your feet wet. You will learn how to set type, lock up a form, and print an edition on the Vandercook proof press. We will work with the Center’s extensive collection of type, and help you to design a card to be proud of. Come away with a taste for printing and a small edition of your own business cards. All materials provided with tuition.
