Workshops


 We will be offering at least one workshop per month, with a rotating selection of topics covered. Everything from basic typesetting,  advanced typesetting, woodblock printing, and visual communication. We will also be bringing in guest lecturers occasionally to help grow the knowledge of the letterpress and culture. Registration for the Fall/Winter and Spring Workshop Series. We can be reached at 778-519-5010 or email us.

We also do private workshops & seminars, and events for school groups. Contact us for information or to book a time to bring your group. Additionally, once you’ve taken a workshop that includes information about how to use the equipment, you will be eligible for a drop-in membership, with a few options to return and continue to work in the studio.

Come down and learn how to use the press at your own pace for a low price. Interested people can come down and learn how to print a variety of things from wood and linoleum blocks, to typographic projects.
