In this six hour letterpress workshop, you will learn to print on the Vandercook proof press and the Chandler & Price Pilot Press.
Using The Arm's five Vandercook presses and C&P Pilot, participants will print a variety of items from metal type, wood type, and samples of photopolymer plates and hand cut linoleum blocks.
This one day class will prepare you to use the presses in our studio needing only occasional guidance from studio personnel. All materials and supplies are included.
This workshop is an excellent place to start if you would like to gain the skills necessary to print your own projects like business cards, stationery, wedding invitations and posters. Upon completion of this one day workshop, you will be qualified to book time on our presses during open hours each week.
Please see the About section of our website for more information on reserving press time.
