This workshop is for absolute beginners or anyone who needs a refresher course in traditional letterpress printing. Learn some of the basics of type setting, inking, and operating the press. By the end of this workshop you should be able to operate the press and make a print!
Space is limited and we are able to accommodate up to six participants. You are best to RSVP in advance via Eventbrite. If not all tickets are sold online, drop in tickets will be sold at the studio. Currently, there is still space available! Please bring cash or a cheque if you are paying in person. The full cost of the workshop is $40.00 but because we are committed to inclusivity and accessibility we’ve included a sliding scale option. Please pay what you can.
You can also pay by PayPal.
