2023 Holiday Card Workshop

Join us for an introduction to letterpress as you make 15 simple holiday greeting cards from our movable type. Come with an idea for no more than 20 words, look through our dingbats, or select a preprinted image to create your design. You’ll experience the basics of type composition, get help printing on the press, and leave with the cards you can put to immediate use.
