Holiday Card Class 2017: Introduction to Letterpress

Saturday, December 09, 12 Noon – 5:00 PM
Register early as this popular class always fills fast!

Join us for an introduction to letterpress as you make 15 simple holiday greeting cards from our lead type.
Come with an idea for no more than 20 words and look through our dingbats and images to create your design.
You’ll experience the basics of moveable type composition, get help printing on the press, and leave with cards you can put to immediate use.
