Qué harás

At the Quick Letterpress Printing Workshop, we will examine the history and technology that made letterpress printing possible, we will typeset lead type into monogrammed notecards, and we will use an antique Vendercook proofing press to print these notecards onto a range of carstock and fine art papers. Attendees will take home a personalized A2 notecard that they typeset and printed themselves.

I've taught typesetting workshops for ten years, know the history and technology of letterpress printing backwards and forwards, and love to introduce people to the rewarding world of hand-set type. Reflex Letterpress is my printing studio in the Charlestown part of Boston, where I do production and instruction in this rewarding not-quite-obselete process.

Donde estarás

The Stove Factory Building is, in fact, a former factory for making stoves. The floors are specially reinforced to take the weight of cast-iron stove bodies, and so is a perfect location for artistic activities of all kinds.

This was a great workshop! We heard an overview of the history of letterpress and got some hands-on experience with setting type and letterpress printing. Learned quite a bit in only two hours and had a lot of fun. Definitely recommend!

Had a wonderful time learning about block printing, but also the history of the printing press. Really enjoyed being able to utilize a hands on experience with a specialized product I could take home.

Very knowledgeable, it was interesting to learn about the history of movable type. Easy to get there via the T and it looked like parking could be found as well.

It was cool to be able to touch a piece of history. The space is old and unique by itself. Ted is knowledgeable and passionate about letterprinting which makes him a great instructor. Overall everyone in my family said "it was really cool"
