Description

In this digital age of publishing, Cate Kuzik of Ochre Lea Letterpress is here to show you the hands-on, immersive process of letterpress!

In this half-day workshop, Cate will walk you step-by-step through the tactile process of creating your own set of letterpress greeting cards. She’ll share examples, including live demos, and then guide you through carving an image, setting type, mixing ink, and printing on a hundred-year-old tabletop letterpress. You’ll leave with your very own hand-designed and printed greeting cards with a physical quality unlike any other form of printing. Participants will also get a small handmade book on how to print their linoleum at home and a folder/box to take their cards home in.

Working with ink can get messy! We advise you to wear clothing you don’t mind staining, just in case.

All materials are included and no experience is required.
