Intro to Letterpress

  • Power & Light Press 108 East College Avenue Silver City, NM, 88061 United States (map)

In this workshop, we will demystify the process of letterpress printing and learn to see it as an approachable means of communication and expression.  We'll cover basic press safety and protocol, as well as the fundamentals of relief printing, typesetting, impression, and ink mixing.  Students will come away with a small edition of posters or cards, which they will have designed and printed themselves.  Come get inky and learn about antique machines!

Minimum 2 students, Maximum 5.
