PAST Cheers! Letterpress Printed Coasters




Saturday, March 16th, 10am-4pm


About the Course

Make your next St. Patrick’s Day, cocktail hour or holiday party extra special with your own custom letterpress drink coasters!

Learn to design with vintage movable lead type & take home a set of 20 handmade drink coasters. Come with a short phrase in mind (8 words / 60 letters or less) & peruse our collection of typefaces and ornaments for inspiration. Students will learn letterpress basics like composing with movable type, locking up designs in a chase, and mixing ink by hand. Each person will print their own design on one of our tabletop platen presses.

Cost of workshop includes materials, instruction and takeaway prints. Paper in this workshop is from French Paper Company, a small Michigan Paper Mill around for more than 140 years.

Price: $150
