One day’s not nearly enough time to learn the intricacies of letterpress, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had when you stick to basics and shoot from the hip — especially when you have an experienced letterpress instructor giving you help and inspiration. Whether you’re new to letterpress or know the lay of a type case like the back of your hand, you’ll enjoy playing with SVC’s collection of wood type and imagery, experimenting both on and off press with hand-inking and overprinting. And here’s another bonus: You can apply the tuition from this lunch workshop towards SVC’s Letterpress Level 1 class (not combinable with other discounts). So now you have one more reason to come learn these skills and more:

  • How to select the right typeface
  • Printing with pre-carved linocut images
  • Mixing inks to create the desired hue
  • Best way to hand-ink a form
  • The delightful effects of imprecise registration
  • Operating a hand proofing press
