Registration closes November 7, 2023 and all materials are provided.

Sample images by Theresa Esterlund and Sara Blumberg


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

  • Personal apron (we’ll have extras) or wear clothes that can get inky
  • Pencil and notepad for taking notes
  • Any personal items you’d like to try printing on—old prints/artwork, book pages, vintage magazines—anything that you might have thrown out and want to upcycle into art.


Theresa Esterlund is an artist and educator who lives in Arlington, Virginia. After retiring from a professional career in museum education, she channeled her vision to inspire compassionate connections into a stationery business that reflects the intersection of her artistic and mindfulness practices. Her collages are windows that open to the inside—as well as abstract landscapes and other arrangements. She brings her love of gathering, sorting, and composing to letterpress, which also gives her a path to integrate words and phrases from her poetry.
