Using The Arm's collection of antique and twentieth century wood type, you will design and print your own frame-ready letterpress poster edition. We will guide you through the process of printing gradient or flat color backgrounds, work with you to set your type, and also give attention to clean typography. This workshop is BYOB so feel free to arrive with some beer or wine. No printing experience is necessary.e
Bring a concept- a phrase or a sentence would be good. These will be printed on our studio's five Vandercook presses.
Each participant will have 5 sheets of newsprint for proofing and 20 sheets of Carolina C1S 12x18 for their final prints. We will aid in wrapping the prints at the end of the session to protect them for safe transport home.

Please note that our Vandercook and C&P Pilot class is needed to book projects independently in our public studio.
