Ce vei face

At the Reflex Letterpress typesetting workshop, we will begin with an introduction to the space and a description of the present letterpress renaissance in Boston. This will lead into a quick overview of letterpress printing, with an examination of its history and the necessity for its development. Next, we will set A2-size monogrammed notecards as an icebreaker project and learn the workings of the Vandercook No 4 proofing press. Finally, we will use lead type and composition tools to set a personalized A2-size calling card. Each attendee will go home with two personalized, hand-printed projects.
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 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.

Unde vei fi

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.

The 4 hour workshop was magical! My husband and I learned so much and we were so geeked to be able to set our own type and print our own things. Ted was an amazing host and we will absolutely be back the next time we are in town!

This was a great workshop! It turned out I was the only attendee, so I had personalized instruction, which was great. Ted went over the history of letterpress and I came away with a bunch of beautiful A2 sized pieces.

Absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend the experience if you're a fan of letterpress or just looking for something different to do in the city. Ted is a patient teacher with a wealth of knowledge. Wished I could have stayed and played around all day.
