Ex Libris - Handprinted Bookplates - Letterpress Basics Workshop

  • Striped Light 107 Bearden Place Knoxville, Tennessee (map)

Do you adore physical media? Here at Striped Light we certainly do.  So we are offering a very special workshop that will help you celebrate the love you have for your personal library.   This workshop will focus on creating your very own custom handset and hand-printed letterpress bookplates.  Each participant will design and print an edition of 100 impressions of their composition.   This class is perfect for bibliophiles, graphic design nerds, and anyone who loves the finer things in life.   We will be using antique printing presses and vintage lead typography. 

Give this class as a gift to yourself,  take the workshop to make an edition for that special someone,  or just enroll that special person for one of the most culturally enriching and tactilely satisfying evenings that be had in all of East Tennessee. 

No prior printing or design experience is needed for this Letter Press Basics workshop and all necessary materials are provided. The cost of the class is $70. Zip on over to our classes page to register!
