Print Shop Workshops: Registration Open!

Location: Rose O’Neill Literary House

August 29, 2016
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.

UPDATE: Registration is now full for both Fall 2016 workshops! Check back for our Spring 2017 workshop offerings in January.


Print Shop Workshops at the Rose O’Neill Literary House are due to begin the third week of classes in the fall 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, September 13, 2016. 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, September 15, 2016. 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 e-mail lit_house@washcoll.edu.
