I'm so excited to get back to teaching workshops again! This summer I plan to do a few, and I'll also add some vending and pop-up shops around town. This first round, I'll be back at the gorgeous Signal-Return studio in Detroit's historic Eastern Market for two typesetting workshops.
CHEERS! COASTER PRINTING WORKSHOP WITH THE AQUARIUS HOUSE
Saturday, June 25th, 10am-4pm
Make your next teatime or cocktail hour special with your own custom letterpress drink coasters!
Learn to design with vintage movable type & take home a set of 20 handmade drink coasters.
Come with a short phrase in mind & peruse our collection of typefaces 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. Link here to sign up at Signal-Return

Saturday, July 16th, 10am-4pm

Whether it’s a clever phrase or a classic design with your name or monogram, students will be able to customize their stationery in every step of the process. Participants will design their pieces with movable type, learn how to lock up a chase, and mix ink by hand. Each person will print their own design on one of our tabletop platen presses.
