Printing on the Platen Press
with Jason Yoh
Sat-Sun, May 20 & 21; 10am-4pm

Whether you own your own "clam shell" or have never seen a press, this popular class is a good introduction to letterpress printing. Set metal type by hand, learn to lock it into a chase, and letterpress print editions of your own design. This comprehensive workshop will offer the chance for participants to use both our foot-operated treadle platen press and our tabletop presses. Also open to those who want to bring their own tabletop press!
