Letterpress workshop coming up – April 2nd!

This ain’t your grandma’s scrapbooking workshop! Want to do something different and walk away with a product worth well over $100?  Come set some type, choose a few choice cuts, design your own stationery project and run a 70-year-old cast iron beast of a machine!

Join our intro to letterpress printing workshop in Sudbury, ON on April 2nd. Two spots are open!!

Letterpress calling cards designed by previous workshop attendees
Run Claudette The Letterpress yourself!

Here are the details again:

In this day-long introductory workshop, you will be introduced to our vintage Chandler Price & Co. New Style press, learn the basics of setting lead type in the chase, mounting the chase on the press, inking and printing one colour. We will be printing personalized note cards, and we have over 100 type styles and sizes to choose from, as well as boxfuls of ornaments and etched graphics.

You will also learn what real “em” and “en” quads are, learn the basic California job case and what all those strange typography terms really mean!

We can only take on three participants to ensure everyone has enough time with the press, so sign up soon!
