Letterpress Classes

They are filling up quickly but I still have some spots open in my letterpress classes here in San Francisco.

Class Description
In this beginning class students will print their own business cards (or calling cards) and learn the basics* of printing with photopolymer plates on a proof press. This a great way to get your toes wet and get a feel for how letterpress works. Students will either choose a design from the options right here or else submit their own design a week in advance. Everyone will go home with 250 one-color business cards.

Class Size: 8 Students
Cost: $125 (includes material fees)

Here is the schedule for the new classes:

PRINT YOUR OWN BUSINESS CARDS
Saturday May 2nd 10am-2pm
Tuesday May 11th 6pm-10pm
Saturday May 30th 10am-2pm

Letterpress Classes

I have some new sections of letterpress classes available. The business card class is available as usual but I decided to try something new by doing party invitations and print-your-own wedding invitation classes. (All classes are held at my studio in San Francisco.)
