This class will teach the primary skills of letterpress printing using vintage handset typography. Each participant will learn how to properly compose, lock-up, and print a form on our presses.  A small edition will be made of each design, and every student will receive a folio holding a complete suite of the prints created during this whirlwind workshop.  Please come prepared with a short motto or mantra that you’d like to share with the world.
