Time for another workshop!

After the success of our first workshop, we’ve decided to offer another on June 12th!

——————————————————————————

Papillon Press is offering an exciting opportunity for three participants to learn the age-old craft of letterpress printing.

Our Chandler & Price New Style press inked up in silver ink.

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!

When: Saturday, June 12th, 2010
Time: 9am-5pm
What you will print: personalized note cards
Studio Limit: 3 participants
Cost: $140 (includes ink and paper)

Location: our studio at 1287 Cawthorpe Street, Sudbury, ON. 705-618-1168.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you had any other workshops planned for the next few months. I realize you’re closed for a few weeks but perhaps you could let me know when you return.

    Thanks very much,

    Christine
