What you'll do

At the Quick Letterpress Printing Workshop, we will examine the history and technology that made letterpress printing possible, we will typeset lead type into monogrammed notecards, and we will use an antique Vendercook proofing press to print these notecards onto a range of carstock and fine art papers. Attendees will take home a personalized A2 notecard that they typeset and printed themselves.

I've taught typesetting workshops for ten years, know the history and technology of letterpress printing backwards and forwards, and love to introduce people to the rewarding world of hand-set type. Reflex Letterpress is my printing studio in the Charlestown part of Boston, where I do production and instruction in this rewarding not-quite-obselete process.

What's included

Equipment
All letterpress printing equipment, solvents, inks, materials and papers will be provided.

Where you'll be

The Stove Factory Building is, in fact, a former factory for making stoves. The floors are specially reinforced to take the weight of cast-iron stove bodies, and so is a perfect location for artistic activities of all kinds.

More tips

This is a hands-on experience, and letterpress printing is a technical trade that takes some physical involvement. Your hand-made item will, indeed, be hand-made by you!
