About your host

I am the owner, designer, and printer for a small letterpress business that focuses on providing customers with a practical piece of handmade artwork, whether it be greeting cards, wedding invitations or business cards! I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts with a focus on book and paper arts and I'm so happy teach others about such a unique art form.

What we’ll do

Guests will learn the hands on letterpress printing process starting with a brief history of this age old art form. We will learn about the ways letterpress has transformed over the years and the important tools we will use to make cards. Together, we will score paper and print two designs with two colours; for a total of ten cards. We will finish by packaging our newly printed cards with matching…
