One-to-One, or Two-to-One, Custom Lessons (3 hours)
Want to learn a specific technique or have a particular project in mind? Lessons—for individuals, or as a two-to-one so you can learn with a friend—are catered to your needs and schedule. If you’re new to letterpress, work at your own pace and learn the basics of letterpress printing and the fundamentals of using a tabletop set-up or the Vandercook press using wood type, typesetting with metal type, as well as using photopolymer and/or hand-carved plates. If you’ve taken a class or have other previous experience, one-to-one lessons are a great way to practice techniques, learn more complicated processes, receive assistance tailored to a specific project, and work towards studio certification.
Registration includes purposeful scheduling to ensure the lesson works with your schedule and you are partnered with the right instructor for your specific needs. In addition you will receive a brief consultation (by phone or email) with the instructor before the lesson and access to various tools, supplies, and other resources in the studio. Options to extend the learning for additional time and/or sessions are available.
No previous experience necessary. All levels welcome!
After you purchase your lesson, we will contact you within the next seven (7) days to set up a time and date that works with your schedule. To help speed up the process, please answer the questions provided at checkout.
Because lessons are customized, they are not eligible for discounts.
Scheduling Policies: Please note we cannot guarantee to place your lesson within 7 days of purchase. The lesson will become invalid (and non-refundable) if your schedule is not confirmed within 30 days of purchase. Lessons can be rescheduled with at least 4 days notice of the original scheduled date.
