About this Workshop:

What travel itineraries have you dreamed up in the past two years of limited travel and closed borders? Join us for a fun night learning about wood type and letterpress on the Vandercook press. Participants will choose several favorite (or dream!) destination airport codes to print in wood type.  Both presses will be set-up with examples for an overview of using the press before we swap out the letters so everyone can pull their very own itinerary prints. 

Level: All levels welcome – No previous letterpress experience needed. 

Registration closes June 5, 2022 and includes all materials. 

Sample images by Meghan Gordon.


Registration includes all materials—just come ready to have fun! In addition, you may want to bring the following for class:

  • Personal apron (or wear clothes that can take a spot of ink)
  • Pen and paper for notes if you like
  • A few ideas of where you’d like to “travel”!


Meghan Gordon loves the tactile and improvisational aspects of letterpress printing with wood and metal type. Many of her designs are inspired by modern takes on traditional quilt patterns. She has a journalism background and lives in Hyattsville. Check out her work @keepmaking on Instagram.
