About this Workshop:

In this multi-day workshop, participants will create an edition of saddle stitched books/magazines. Participants will develop and typeset their content, from poetry to abstract designs. We will break it down into reader spreads and print and bind a small edition. 

Level: Intermediate: Introduction to Letterpress on the Vandercook or Tabletop, or equivalent letterpress experience (6 hours), required.

Registration closes November 4, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class. A list of additional items students will need to gather/purchase for class will be sent with the registration confirmation email.

Lauren Emeritz loves letters but not spelling. When she found out graphic design existed she signed right up! After loving that for a while, she wanted to get off the computer and get her hands dirty. Letterpress combines all her favorite things: type (especially wood type), paper, ink, creativity / problem-solving and making things by hand. You can find her on the interweb at: abstractorange.com
