Letterpress & Book Binding Workshop - BOTH Days!

from 60.00

Have you ever wanted to learn how letterpress printing works? Itching to start making your own journals and sketchbooks? On April 15th & 22nd, I will be co-hosting a two-part letterpress and bookmaking workshop with the extremely talented Emily Rials of Bound To Help! Come spend TWO Sunday afternoons with us at the Risley Letterpress Shop, as we show you how to set type, print your chosen text on paper using antique machinery, and then create two different types of notebooks using paper you've printed yourself!

All experience levels are welcome. We'll provide all the tools and supplies you'll need for printing your own cover pages and assembling two different kinds of books. Payment options are available on a sliding scale. Because of all the bookmaking awesomeness, we're stretching the workshop over two meetings - we'll be setting type, letterpress printing, and sewing pamphlets the first week, then creating Coptic-bound journals the next - but if you can only make it to one of the sessions, we can accommodate that, too. Looking forward to seeing you there!

When: Sundays, April 15th & 22nd, 2 - 5pm

Where: Risley Letterpress Shop on Cornell campus - Risley Hall, Thurston Ave., Ithaca, NY

What: A hands-on tutorial on basic letterpress printing and book binding techniques. We will be setting type and printing during the first half of our workshop (April 15th), and making books during the second (April 22nd). All tools and supplies will be provided. Just bring yourself!

Who: This class is open to all levels and backgrounds - no preliminary knowledge of letterpress printing or book binding is necessary. Only 5 spots available for each day of the workshop.

Price: Asking price is $80, with sliding scale options down to $60. At checkout, just select the amount you feel comfortable giving! Also, if you are only able or wanting to join us for one of the two parts of this workshop ($50 for a single day), simply select the corresponding listing from the SHOP page to sign up & let us know when to expect you! 

A confirmation email with details and FAQs about the class will be sent about a week before the first half of the workshop.
