If you have heard about letterpress but are unsure what it is or how it works, this class will allow you to peer inside the rich history and engaging techniques of letterpress printing. This class introduces the process, the materials, the machines, and the satisfaction of printing by hand on several tabletop platen presses. Participants will learn the basics of setting type using A6’s collection of lead type and decorative ornaments—as well as inking, locking up and pulling a print.
