An In-Studio Workshop!
Learn the basics of letterpress printing with antique lead type on a Chandler & Price Pilot tabletop platen press. Students will learn how to set lead type, operate the tabletop press, troubleshoot, clean, and maintain the press—the perfect foundation for anyone interested in having their own small press at home. Each participant will handset a few lines of text of their own choosing and print a small edition (10-15 prints).
Registration closes November 7, 2021. Material fees are included with your registration.
Please Note (as of September 10, 2021): Pyramid values the health and wellbeing of our artists, teachers, students, staff, and visitors. At this time, we are choosing to remain more conservative than many local ordinances and require mask wearing in all public spaces in the building.
Taking an in-person class at Pyramid has potential for close physical contact between the students and teachers. As part of our commitment to providing a safe work environment and reducing the potential exposure or transmission of Covid-19, we request that on the first day of class you provide either proof of vaccination or proof of recent negative Covid-19 test results (within 72 hrs). If you are unable to provide these documents, please contact the front desk for a health screening questionnaire. Pyramid will offer a full refund to anyone at any time if they feel unwell or that they may put others at risk of exposure.
Please contact us with any additional questions or concerns.
