Learn the language, tools, and materials of letterpress. Learn the rhythm; learn the type. This is a method of printing that predates our grandparents time. The results can be stunning. The kiss of antique type onto fine paper makes a lasting impression. This class introduces you to the basics of letterpress printing, setting type and printing a favorite short quote or saying.  The meditative process of constructing words out of pieces of lead is very satisfying, and the resulting product can be beautiful.

Carl Youngmann began setting type, letter by letter, in 1960; Ellie Mathews combines her experience as a designer with her willingness to explore the techniques of relief printing. Together, they will guide you through the basics and share with you their passion for the craft.

This introductory class is the first step in gaining fob access to the letterpress and type cases.
