      Intro to Letterpress

      This beginner half-day workshop is designed to introduce you to the historical relief printing technique of letterpress by offering hands-on experience with a midcentury Vandercook 219AB ­handfed cylinder proof press! Delve into letterpress history and methods, learn the fundamentals of typography while playing with bassackward’s collection of wood type, walk through the process of type composition and lockup, and experience the process of setting up and inking the press, pulling prints, and studio best practices including safe operation and proper breakdown and clean up. You will go home with a custom wood type letterpress poster, hand-cranked by you!

      Cost: Payment required - $100 (materials included)
