Private Group & Corporate Team Building Workshops
We offer custom tailored private workshops featuring the art and craft of letterpress printing and bookbinding.
Our most popular format is a 3-hour session that includes both printing and binding. Workshop participants learn about the evolution of printing through a lecture by our Studio Manager and by pulling prints on our Vandercook presses. Participants will then learn to bind the prints into a pamphlet stitch book. Everyone leaves with a set of letterpress printed notecards and a hand bound book. The general rate for this workshop format is $100/person.
This format can be simplified into a shorter (minimum 2-hour) or longer (up to 8-hour) workshop. A day-long workshop would allow participants to collaborate to complete an entire letterpress printed book. Everyone would gain an overview of setting type, mixing ink, preparing makeready, dealing with kiss-off and determining paper grain, all while working together to create a unique book. The per person price is adjusted accordingly.
We do our best to accommodate all types of organizations, developing a workshop that will be appropriate to your group size and budget.
