Experience the art and craft of letterpress printing while getting your hands dirty making message-driven broadsides. Peruse a selection of broadsides featuring political messages and poetry, then learn beginning typesetting using wood and metal type. Each participant will design and print their own small edition of broadsides on the Vandercook press. The workshop consists of technical demonstrations on press operation, hand inking with brayers, and various simple image-printing processes. Experience the satisfaction of printing your unique message through the physical process of letterpress printing!
