Our first letterpress workshop of 2019 was last weekend! We had a great group of 18 individuals sign-up to learn more about the letterpress printing process with us. It was one of our largest classes and we loved how everyone was able to connect on their own creative level whether they were designers or simply had a night off without the kids, our workshops are always a unique atmosphere to learn something you've never been able to do before.
Workshop nights always begin with plenty of food, snacks, & wine (all the good stuff) and end with everyone being able to know the step-by-step process of letterpress printing one of our cards. From mixing ink, to setting up plates, and actually feeding your own paper into the press to get the final product just right.
Our favorite part is taking in as many questions as we can answer during the class and getting to know everyone who has made the effort to learn with us. There is a huge sense of pride being able to say "I made that!" and knowing the effort and patience that it takes when you're learning to print for the very first time.
A huge thank you to everyone who signed-up for this workshop! The postcards we made turned out even better than we imagined and we can't wait for the next one!
