Yes it’s true…I’m finally ready to do more classes.
I’m really sorry for all the delays, due to shop production and my summer touring schedule it’s been really difficult to find time, but
I simply can’t hold any of you up any longer.
Here’s how it works.
Classes are 4 hours and are limited to 2 people (that way each person gets the most out of it)
We’ll go over the machines, the best paper for the process, how foil stamping, die cutting and embossing works and the general vibe of what letterpress can and can’t do. It’s important to have an idea of what you’d like to print, this is not a ‘print job’ class, it’s an over view of letterpress and the print process, we can’t print business cards, invites or any custom designs.
You’ll get to choose from over 100 sets of lead type, 40 sets of vintage wood type as well as over 1000 vintage images. We set it up and you get to run about 50 -75 pieces of 100% cotton Cranes Lettra paper on a Chandler and Price Old Style letterpress (1890) by hand. Some people print their names, maybe a song lyric or quote, a simple type jumble or something like that.
You need to wear closed toe shoes and keep in mind your hands will get dirty so white shirts aren’t the best : )
Cost of the class is $175.00 per person. To reserve your spot you need to confirm the date you want with me then send a check made payable to
4599 Mission Gorge Place
San Diego, CA 92120
There are a few of you with gift certificates and those will be honored for the classes, I will try and give these people priority as best as I can.
Here are the dates of the classes….
Saturday Sept. 8th…12 noon to 4pm
Tuesday Sept. 11th… 6pm to 10pm
Thursday Sept. 27th…6pm to 10pm
From past experience I know these classes fill VERY fast and I will do my best to get confirmations back to you as soon as possible.
If there is any way I can add more classes this month I’ll send another email as soon as I can.
I will also be doing Oct classes and will have those dates up by the last week of this month if not sooner.
