Intro to Letterpress
February 8, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Learn the basics of printing letterpress at The Soapbox, from setting type, to locking up your form on the press, to printing (and cleaning!) using the proof press and Vandercook cylinder press.
Other methods of image making will be discussed. Explore our type drawers and gain the basic skills you need to work during Open Hours. A materials fee coveres paper, ink, and other consumables for an introductory project.
