This workshop is an introduction to letterpress printing and manual type setting for the complete beginner. You'll learn to use a job stick, hand-set type from our expanding collection of metal and wood type typefaces and ornaments and then print your work on one of our five Vandercook flatbed cylinder presses. We supply the paper, you supply the ambition!

For the first half of the workshop, we'll thoroughly explore the wood type collection. You'll have a chance to create wood type posters using a variety of type and in a variety of colors. Phew! Break for lunch. Then, for the second half of the workshop, bring a six word memoir. We'll set these memoirs, compose them into a single poem (Exquisite Corpse style) and create a poetry broadside.
