Participants will have the opportunity to hand set wood and metal type from our collection to create their own, original mini-poster. Once your type is set and ready to print, we’ll ink up our two Vandercook Proofing Presses and let you run your own editions. If time allows we may delve into two color runs, possible custom linoleum cuts and/or advanced printing techniques.
Space is limited to 6 people, no experience necessary.
