LETTERPRESS WORKSHOPS // 2016

We offer one-on-one introductory letterpress workshops on Saturdays and Sundays. These hands-on workshops are held at our lovely & light-filled studio and run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a one-hour break for lunch.

You will learn the basics of letterpress and print your own set of custom stationery on an antique letterpress.

This includes:

– Setting metal type and using photopolymer plates. You’ll have a selection of both to choose from.
– Learning the make-ready process, letterpress terminology, and how to use, maintain, and clean the press.
– Hand-mixing ink (as many colours as time will allow!)
– Printing your own set of luxe, personalized social stationery on our hand-operated antique Chandler & Price Pilot press.

Workshops are $165 per participant (plus HST), with a non-refundable 50% deposit due upon registration. This fee covers the costs of all supplies, including 50 pieces of luxurious, 100% tree-free notelets (flat A2). If you love paper as much as we do, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
