Learn to print!
Letterpress is gaining popularity and many people wonder how to get started printing. A lot of folks don't quite know what the process is and this is the prefect opportunity to see what you need to start printing and learn the letterpress way. You can learn all of this and more at the Dogs & Stars newly remodeled studio. 1/2 and full day work shops are available. The studio is equipped with a 1915 10x15 platen press, three tabletop proof presses, dozens of both antique metal and wood type fonts, metal and wood ornaments and borders and fun vintage cuts.
ON DEMAND PRIVATE WORKSHOP (4 hours)

The shop is all yours for a 1/2 day! I teach students to set type, lock it up, and print. No experience required. Learn to operate the platen or sign presses. Learn basic ink mixing. Introduction to polymer plates. Take home a set of notecards, business cards or coasters. Scope of class is up to the workshop participants– it's up to you what you want to learn.
