In our 3-hour workshop, you'll learn how to use a large Vandercook proof press (15" x 18"), one of the most user-friendly presses to learn on.
Class will cover how to hand set type--with both lead, ornamental, and antique wood type to experiment with--as well as how to use polymer plates attached to a base.
Students will leave with a set of custom stationery of their own creation.
No printmaking experience necessary.Private letterpress classes are also available, either for individuals or small groups. Leave me a private message for pricing and to set up an appointment that works for your schedule.

Mandolin Brassaw taught at the college level for more than ten years, all the while cultivating a love of letterpress printing on the sly. In 2008, she co-founded the letterpress collaborative, Paper Boat Studios, with Amy Thompson.
Grapheme (now Mandolin's full-time endeavor) was established as a letterpress studio in 2014 and opened its retail doors in 2015. She still loves the life of the mind—and the written word—but is championing it in a new context. Her intention with Grapheme is to encourage others towards greater creativity, purposefulness, and a love of learning.
