"A Book of Excuses" - Letterpress Basics

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

Explore the wide selection of vintage lead typography found in the Striped Light collection while you compose exquisite specimens of your most outrageous excuses.  “Excuses for what?... one might ask” -  well we need not know just yet, but as a class we will be creating a potentially useful collection for your future reference.   In this workshop you will learn how to properly set movable type and operate our studio's flatbed cylinder proof presses. After all the excuses are set, a title for the book will be declared, and all the pages then be printed.  Everybody in the class will leave with at least two copies of the finished book.  Please come to the class with a prewritten excuse to begin our work; if you come empty-handed you better have a "good reason."

The cost of this workshop is $65 and all materials are provided!
