Introduction to Letterpress Printing
November 13, 10:30 am - 1:30 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.
Please note: We require all visitors to the Soapbox wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status. The instructor reserves the right to ask you to leave if you do not comply.
