Instruction will be for two hours, then students can use the listed open studio hours to work on projects. Projects may include group letterpress posters, one & multicolor prints, stationary, & individual broadsides.

No previous experience required. This course is designed to educate about the basics of letterpress, so after completion you can letterpress print any projects during CASP's open studio hours.
