An In-Studio Workshop!

Wednesday, April 20, 7-9pm

About this Workshop:

This make-and-take would allow students to pick a date special to them and print it using wood type. We will have both Vandercook presses set up with a loose template of large wood type numbers (example: 12.20.13) that we will swap out based on each student’s special dates. This is a great workshop for beginners and those working towards certification, as it will teach the basic press setup and print-pulling process.

Level: Beginner

Registration closes April 10, 2022 and includes all materials.

  • Personal apron (or wear clothes that can get inky)
  • A few ideas for your meaningful date(s)


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.
