Cylinder Core Certificate Program
The handfed cylinder proof press, also known as the Vandercook press, has a special place in both print history and in teaching book arts. Immediate and accessible, yet nuanced and specific, it is the press that introduced many of us to letterpress. The four class Cylinder Core Certificate Program allows students to move quickly through the press basics while also addressing relief printing in general. Students who finish the four core classes are qualified to rent press time as well as move on to more advanced classes and techniques.

Develop your letterpress design skills and aesthetic while increasing your letterpress versatility: learn to set up the press, refine your registration skills, and run an edition. Learn more about packing, roller height, and make-ready. Come ready to run an edition of your own small poster!

About the Instructor | Paula Gloistein
Paula Gloistein has an MA in Humanities from Dominican College which really has very little to do with her work as a photographer, designer, and letterpress printer. After more than ten years in the wedding biz, she recently opened a small shop, big day design lounge, that showcases handmade wedding accessories, custom invitations, and workshops for crafty couples.
Past Student Reviews:
“I liked the format. It was nice to have a chance to be independent, but with lots of support. Paula is a great teacher and so patient.”
“Paula is a saint — so patient and clear with everything. I enjoy having her as an instructor.”
“Paula's teaching style is awesome. There were concepts I was confused about or never fully learned in 1&2 that she explained in a few sentences and it clicked. She also was very at ease letting the students touch and do things ourselves, which was not always the case in previous classes. I learned more with Paula than with my other two previous instructors.”
