Have you ever thought about about having a small letterpress in your home? This workshop will cover the basics of letterpress printing with antique lead and wood type on a tabletop galley proof press. Each student will also have the option of carving a linoleum image to print. Students will learn how to create quick flats and hand-set type. Participants will ink their flats and type and operate the tabletop press, as well as troubleshoot and learn proper type cleaning techniques.
