'Handset Holiday Cards' - Letterpress Basics

  • Striped Light 107 Bearden Place Knoxville, TN, 37917 United States (map)

No doubt you’ve had an idea for a Holiday, Thank You or Random Celebratory Sentiment card that you’d love to make a stack of. The holidays are approaching and here’s your chance! Say what you want to say, again and again and again with our Basics of Letterpress workshop devoted to card making.

 In the process of producing your hand-made cards this workshop will cover the basics of typesetting using antique wood and metal typography. Knowledge of operating a flatbed cylinder proof press will also be covered. At the end of the session each participant of the class will leave with at least 25 folded cards and a head full of letterpress knowledge!

All materials are provided and are included in the workshop cost. Zip over to our classes page to register!
