But First, Coffee: April 12 Letterpress Workshop


We had a creative and enthusiastic group in our latest But First, Coffee workshop. Students choose a favorite coffee-inspired quote or saying and then selected wood and metal type (and also from a selection of Virgin and Moore wood type ornaments and cuts) to create a printed work.We had 12×19″ broadsides with big wood type and some more delicate approaches to the theme as well.

We served up Lafayette-roasted coffee from Proper Grounds and snacks from Tee & Cakes to fuel the creative process.
