About this Workshop:

Haiku can help us appreciate the little things in life. Learn the basics of this Japanese poetic form and write your own haiku in the morning of this workshop. In the afternoon, we will learn to set type and print your own poem on a 1960 Vandercook proofing press. You’ll end the day having printed a small edition of your poem.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!

Registration closes October 14, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the necessary supplies for this class.
