Parental units, if you and your child have been looking for unique ways to create with Legos, here’s your chance! Spend an afternoon getting an introduction to letterpress while designing and printing with your child. You’ll both leave with a stack of prints. Come play with us!

You know how to build with them, now you can learn to print from Legos as well. Jump into the fun and fabulous world of letterpress with an afternoon introduction to the processes while playing around with the design possibilities that unconventional materials like Legos bring to the table. This workshop, intended for pairs of parents and children, will explore the possibilities of creating one color prints using flat tile blocks to create pixel oriented images. The instructor will provide bases and tiles for use in class to create relief 'plates' that will be printed on a Cylinder press. Don't miss out on this easily accessible media that appeals to everyone's children and their inner child.
