Letterpress Demo Day

Letterpress was the main form of printing text for 500 years, starting from its invention in the 15th century.

If you're interested in learning to tell your chase from your forme, how to hand-set type (including a cool font from 1898), and how to combine words and images into one unique print, drop by any Sunday in October between 1-3 p.m.

Erik Schuckers, manager of The C4C Workshop, will be working on small letterpress projects, and you're welcome to observe, ask questions, and maybe even try your hand at part of the process. 

Please note: this is not a guided workshop that takes you from beginning to end on a single project. Instead, it's a chance to see and explore different parts of the printing process. 

Sunday, October 27 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
