Join Paula Sheil for this 5-day event of Letterpress Printing. This 5-day workshop is designed to introduce you to letterpress printing and to build on the skills you will learn daily from instructor Paula Sheil. Delve into letterpress history and methods, learn the fundamentals of typography while playing with The Write Place’s collection of lead 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. Students will walk away with custom letterpressed cards, posters, or quotes, all hand-made by you! Come with quotes, song lyrics, or anything you would like to print and share.
