Our apologies for having to postpone this workshop. WePress sent the inking rollers from the letterpress to get repaired and the company in Portland that's working on it has been so busy that it is going to take longer than anticipated. We are very sorry for this inconvenience but we will post the new date for the workshop as soon as we can confirm it! Thanks everyone!
Intro to Letterpress
This workshop is for absolute beginners or anyone who needs a refresher course in traditional letterpress printing. Learn some of the basics of type setting, inking, and operating the press. By the end of this workshop you should be able to operate the press and make a print!
Space is limited and we are able to accommodate up to six participants. You are best to RSVP in advance via Eventbrite. If not all tickets are sold online, drop in tickets will be sold at the studio.
