'Lovers and Haters – Sweet N’ Brief Valentines' - Letterpress Basics

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

Real Love, Cutie Pie, Go Away, Hate You, You Smell…

These two word phrases are often heard more frequently as the sugary Hallmark holiday approaches. Our Lovers and Haters workshop gives you the opportunity to set and hand print a stack of short n’ sweet (or spicy) Valentine’s Day greetings of your choosing.

Each participant will have the opportunity to set and print an edition of one phrase, leaving with a stack of V-day greetings as well as a set of one of each from everyone else in the class. No need to hit up Dollar General at the last minute. You’re going to go the classy route and make them yourself the old fashioned way, using traditional hand set type printed on one of our cylinder proof presses.

No previous experience with printmaking is necessary to join this class. All materials will be provided. Please come prepared with an idea of what special sentiment you would like to print.
