Það sem verður gert

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. Great for teams, great for families and great for groups! I've had several bridal showers, company team-building workshops and family outings at the press, and everyone has a great time. Print your family motto or your company vision statement!

Other things to note

This is a hands-on experience, and letterpress printing is a technical trade that takes some physical involvement. Your hand-made item will, indeed, be hand-made by you!

I've taught typesetting workshops for twelve 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.

Staðsetning

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.

I had a fun time with Ted. He really knows a lot about the history of letterpress printing and it’s obvious he’s passionate about it and everything related to graphic design. I did it alone and truly enjoyed it. An important thing to mention is that not only is Ted knowledgeable of his job and has the ability to create a friendly environment, but he’s also also a great storyteller.

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!

We did the 2 hour letterpress class for my sister’s bachelorette party. It was so much fun! Ted personalized our experience and really listened to our interests. What a wonderful event!

Ted was knowledgeable, friendly, and well-prepared. His wide-ranging expertise, excitement about letterpress printing, and attention to detail was inspiring and made me want to continue to learn more about letterpress printing. Highly recommended!

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.
