More about our guest artist – and another workshop!

First: the workshop.

Alternative Letterpress: Sunday April 21. 1:00 Р5:00 $175, materials included

Have a press and love printing but don’t have the money to buy a ton of large type? Bored of carving linoleum? Don’t want to spend an obscene amount of money to have a plate made for a background? This is the class for you! Come learn some alternative ways to get textures, backgrounds, shapes and letters on your letterpress prints with easy to find items and easy to learn techniques!

Previous Letterpress experience is required. Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting a little inky.
