Our one-day letterpress workshop covers all the basics of letterpress printing on a Vandercook and a C&P tabletop press from our collection of antique wood and metal type. Attendees will learn how letterpress printing works, how to hand-set wood and metal type, mix ink, print from type and polymer plates, and how to troubleshoot printing and press issues. Students will leave the class understanding how to operate the presses safely and efficiently. This workshop costs $140.
Our one-day screenprinting workshop covers all the basics of screenprinting. Attendees will learn first hand how to properly coat, expose, print from, and clean a silkscreen. Differences in inks, printing substrates, screen mesh, and filmwork will all be discussed, and various multi-color registration techniques will be covered. This workshop costs $140.
This session is for anyone who has taken a workshop with us, has a project in mind, but is a little hesitant to come back and print again on their own. This 2 hour session includes one-on-one assistance to help you get started on your own project in either screen printing or letterpress printing. Your assisted session will include help on set up, a printing process refresher, and advice and guidance on your specific project.
Here’s how it works: purchase your 2 hours here, then go to our reservations page, create a username and password, and choose your rental time. In the notes section, just say it’s your 2-hr assisted session and we’ll be ready for you! You can rent longer than 2 hours, but our overall assistance will encompass about 2 hours of your working time. We promise you’ll leave with something you’re satisfied with and thrilled to have made yourself! And your next time back printing on your own will be even easier.
