From Ink to Drink: A Coaster Making WorkshopSunday, May 20th
Coasters are inherently fun and totally utilitarian! Workshop attendees will have a chance to hand set antique type and ornaments to print a set of coasters. We’ll play around in the print shop for a few hours and then head over to nearby Endo Brewing to test those coasters out with an ice cold beer. No letterpress experience required. You don’t need to be into beer to participate in the workshop — the beer part is an added layer of fun. Cheers!

Type Collage Posters For Summer
Saturday, June 9
Come play with wood and metal type and print fun posters celebrating the summer! Participants will learn the basics of traditional hand typesetting and also experiment with arranging type in unusual shapes, as a kind of letter collage. We’ll be printing our posters on a Vandercook SP-15 repro press, which works well for these techniques.
Join us for a day of creative exploration in the printshop! Each participant will go home with a few posters that you can show to your family and friends or give away as gifts.
