Papillon Press hosted its first ever letterpress workshop this past Saturday and it went great! The ladies were introduced to typesetting and to Claudette, our CP & Co. New Style letterpress. They all did very well and ran their jobs through the press like printers-in-the-making.
They were also more ambitious in their typesetting than we expected them to be. Anyone who has ever set lead type by hand knows how time-consuming it can be, but these girls were not daunted and even mixed wood type with metal type.
Thank you to Katie, Kristina and Chantalle for a great workshop and for being easy to teach!
