Past Student Reviews:
"I appreciated her individual attention and support as well as the support of all of the students--it was a good vibe and it encouraged me to come back.”
“I really enjoyed this class! I loved the handcraft that goes into typesetting and printing. I use Adobe programs somewhat often and digital graphic design just isn't the same as letterpress.”
“She was really helpful, especially when I ran into some problems with the printing press.”
