Join us for a creative day of holiday gift making!
There are no available registration dates at this time.
This short one-day community engagement class will offer step by step demonstrations on how to handset type for letterpress printing. It can then be combined on press with premade vintage holiday images. Some paper and envelopes will be provided, but feel free to bring any specific papers and envelopes that you want to print on. Jam Papers and Envelopes is a good place to order stock in a wide variety of colors.
