For kids ages 8-12 and must be accompanied by one adult. Studio limit is 2 children per workshop.
Instructions and materials will be provided but participants are welcome to bring in their own cardstock (8 x 10 inches) to print with, time permitting.
- All tools, instructions and materials provided
- Create your own design or choose from pre-designed patterns
- Print on a vintage tabletop mini proofing press with one or two colours
No previous experience required as this workshop is a great introduction to letterpress printing.
