About this Workshop:

Join us as we use the Vandercook press without ink to communicate with impressions of text on paper. You’ll learn basic typesetting and take away a souvenir of your efforts in blind embossing! No homework and no experience necessary. Just bring yourself and get ready to have some fun.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!

Registration extended through March 12, 2023 and includes all materials.

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.



“I enjoyed the “playful” aspect of letting participants explore and try things out on their own.”
