The Joy of Letterpress: Basics I
Join us for a short demonstration and an introduction to Letterpress equipment!
This class repeats on the first Wednesday of every month, 6pm to 8pm.
Learners in this class will leave knowing how to:
- "Lock up a chase" - Composing the printing elements (type, blocks, furniture) into a printable configuration, ready to load into the press
- "Set up a job" - Specifying and preparations for a printing run including paper selection and cutting, imagery, ink color and press adjustments
This beginner class will get your foot in the door of the Letterpress shop. In order to work independently in Letterpress you will need this foundational course.
In this class things could get a little bit messy, please dress appropriately.
Face masks are required at the discretion of class instructors, so it's a good idea to have one with you.
