Looking for a general course on letterpress printing

I’m purchasing a C&P printer in the coming months and I was hoping to find a class that would teach the basics and some advance skills so I can get up and running. If anyone can recommend a class I would be ever so thankful

what model and what is your location?

Not knowing where you are…

If you can make it to Boston, Mass Art (http://www.massart.edu) teaches a great weekend workshop in letterpress fundamentals. Their studios are mostly Vandercooks, which are going to be a lot different to operate than your C&P.

If you are in NYC or New England, you could also potentially make it to one of Letterpress Things’ (http://www.letterpressthings.com/) one-day workshops. I don’t know what presses they use in a workshop, but I’m sure you could ask to take a look at some of their C&P presses and get some pointers.

Don’t know where you are but we have some great classes at our Printing & Book Arts Center in Rochester, NY. Check out the website at www.geneseearts.org for a listing of the latest class schedule.

Sorry, we’re located in South Florida

We are willing to travel but hoping to find something in the southern states

thank you all for your suggestions and insight.

don’t know if you are stil looking for a class, but the Atlnata Printmakers Studio has classes, but the are only once a week for four weeks. http://www.atlantaprintmakersstudio.org/

I think that to receive the personal loans from creditors you must present a good motivation. Nevertheless, once I’ve got a auto loan, because I wanted to buy a house.

Better you should take the course, or get some experience first to see if you like it and can handle it. Lesson One: KEEP YOUR FINGERS OUT OF IT!!! Also please note: You print with a PRESS not a PRINTER!!!

I really enjoyed the site. For me it is really helpful for me and I am sure to all the followers here!

It looks like two spammers are putting links into this thread. Terminate with extreme prejudice!
