Want to learn with a friend? Need some individual instruction or have a particular project in mind? This lesson is catered to your needs. If you're new to letterpress, work at your own pace and learn the basics of letterpress printing, including working with wood type, photopolymer, and hand-carved plates, and the fundamentals of a tabletop set-up or the Vandercook press. The lesson includes a brief consultation (by phone or email) with the instructor before the lesson.


No previous experience necessary. All levels welcome.
