The Letterpress Lab 101 Class is on sale!

We are so thrilled to be offering this class in our Sheridan, Indiana studio. It is geared toward the beginner who wants to learn more about letterpress printing. We will have demonstrations of our larger presses and each participant will be able to select from 1 of 4 projects that they will get to print on our table top press. Students will learn about different types of presses, inks, papers and printing terms. This is meant to be educational and fun.

The class will be held on Sunday, October 6, from 1-4 pm. The price includes all the project materials. Drinks and snacks will be served. We are keeping the class size small, only 4 students, adults only please. So if you want to come hang out and talk shop, you need to act quickly.

Please contact me with any questions.

I hope to see you here!
