Join the growing legions of letterpress aficionados by learning the fundamentals of printing on SNAP’s Vandercook and Challenge cylinder proofing presses. Hone your typesetting skills as you hand-set antique metal type and create an accompanying linoleum block relief print or pattern. You will learn basics from start to finish including setting type, inking, locking up and pulling your own edition of one-colour prints. No prior experience required. Participants should bring a short written quotation to work with as well as an image, graphic, or pattern that they wish to carve.
