I am teaching a short class in October/November for beginning printers. To sign up go to this link.











Introduction to Letterpress

In this six-week course, students will explore basic letterpress typesetting and printing on both cylinder and platen presses. Utilize Foothill’s large collection of antique type and get an introduction to the history of hand-set type and related terminology. Students will learn to set type, lock-up a press, mix inks, operate and print their projects on a press. Students are encouraged to have a project idea in mind, such as a wedding invitation or greeting card prior to attending class.
