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 letterpresses leather notebook covers. She’ll share examples, including live demos, and then guide you through carving an image into linoleum, mixing ink, and printing on a hundred-year-old tabletop letterpress. After learning basic binding, you’ll transform your handiwork into your very own hand-designed leather notebook covers that will only get better with age.
