About this Workshop:

New year = new goals, right? Join us for a fun night learning about letterpress printing as you print motivational cards with your personal word or phrase of encouragement for the year ahead. Everyone will make a set with their chosen word or phrase, and there will be an opportunity to swap with others at the end of class as well. 

Level: Beginner – no previous experience necessary!

Registration extended to January 15, 2024 and all materials are provided.

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 handy) or wear clothes that can get inky
  • Pen and paper for any note-taking
  • An idea or two of a word or short phrase to print  – keep phrases to 3-5 words


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.
