Every semester the Rose O’Neill Literary House offers free, non-credit-bearing workshops in antique letterpress printing and bookbinding with Master Printer Mike Kaylor.

Print Shop Workshops at the Rose O’Neill Literary House are due to begin the third week of classes in the spring semester and registration is now open! 

Intro to Letterpress Printing, our beginners’ class, will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in our Lit House Print Shop beginning Tuesday, February 3, 2015. You will learn about the history of the printing, from Gutenberg to the twentieth century, while getting a hands-on education in the art of antique letterpress. Set type letter-by-letter and get your hands dirty cranking out your words on one of our antique printing presses.

Our Advanced Workshop in Book Arts will be held on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in our Lit House Print Shop beginning Thursday, February 5, 2015. You will learn about the long history and various techniques of binding books by hand while sewing your own books to take home.

All workshops are free and open to all–students, faculty, staff, and community members. But there are a limited number of available slots. To register, please email Assistant Director, Lindsay Lusby.
