Workshop: The Art of Letterpress Printing at Union Press

Explore the intricate nature of letterpress printing to produce beautiful artwork while learning the fundamentals and history behind this traditional craft.

To celebrate the exhibition Stereotype: New directions in typography, BSA Space invites design lovers to enjoy this crash course, led by Union Press founder Eli Epstein, and explore the basics of hand setting antique wood type and pulling customized prints on a midcentury Vandercook proof press. Step away from your computer and smartphone screens to engage in a tactile process where the result is a lovingly crafted edition of prints.

Space is limited. All materials, including refreshments, will be provided.
