Workshops: Create Your Own Letterpress Poster
Design and print your own letterpress poster using our vintage wood and metal type on our proof press (with our help of course). You’ll design and set your own design, mix your own ink colors and print your own poster as well as learn about the traditional art of letterpress printing. All you need to bring is an idea of what you would like your poster to say (and wear some sensible shoes and clothes that you won’t worry about if you get a touch of ink on them).
This class is limited to 6 participants to allow everyone time to design and print and normally runs 3 hours.
Price per person: $50
This class is perfect for private team-building, celebrations and other small events.
We can customize your workshop to meet your needs.
We supply the use of all of our type, inks, white or kraft 11″ by 14″ poster paper, disposable aprons, gloves and supplies. Light snacks and beverages are also included (no alcohol though). Groups can pre-arrange to bring their own wine and food (must be a private workshop). You will take home at least one copy of your design (plus more if your classmates share) plus a special one-of-a-kind piece from us as our way of saying thanks for coming, y’all.
