Handset Holiday Wishes - Letterpress Basics

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

Holly or Humbug, it's up to you!

No doubt you’ve had an idea for a holiday, thank you or random sentiment that you’d love to share. The holidays are approaching and here’s your chance. Let's make a stack of them! Say what you want to say in printed form, (and stay as far away from the mall as possible), with this Basics of Letterpress workshop.

While hand-setting and printing your cards you'll be given a step by step lesson of 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 fee. All you need to bring are your ideas. Zip over to our classes page to register!
