Craft Night: Letterpress Class

Last week we hosted some letterpress classes at our old studio. It was fun to dust off of my letterpress and give everyone the chance to print their own cards. I started each classes with basic instructions on how to use the letterpress. Then once people started, I shared a little bit more about the basics of letterpress printing. Everyone got the chance to print 2 different cards designs (by Alix Sorrell) with red and yellow ink and all of the money from the event was donated to a local nonprofit preschool. I’m so thankful for everyone who attended – I had such a great time meeting you! More craft nights are coming, so make sure you join our mailing list  to get early access to sign up!

Oh Happy Day Craft Nights: Letterpress Class

We always have the best gift bag sponsors. This time, Knot & Bow sent over black and white versions of their glitter twine. It’s the prettiest twine I’ve ever seen!

The Great Lakes Goods gave everyone packs of their party balloons. I love the fun sayings and designs printed on them.

Everyone got a mini pinata from Furbish. I’m in loooooove with them.

Acme Party Box sent us the cutest little milk bottles! (I also think they’d make awesome vases.)

    Glad I signed up for your email list after missing out the last time. This was a nice easy class and the participants at my session were varied in background but similar in curiosity. Thanks for giving us the chance to try out letterpress on your machine for ourselves. The swag bag & details were a nice treat. Just what I thought the Oh Happy Day experience would be like.
    *yes, was planning to write this even w/o knowing my picture would be here! psyched! thanks Paul & Jordan ;) *
