Upcoming Workshop with San Jose Printers’ Guild

by San Jose Printers’ Guild

Summer is heating up and it’s time for a cold drink. Why not create your own letterpress printed coasters on which to rest your frosty beverage?

This one-day workshop will allow you access to the collection of wood and metal type, engravings and dingbats at the History San Jose, Print Shop. Design and print a set of coasters on our antique tabletop platen presses. Instruction will cover the basics of hand setting type, operation of the press as well as tips and resources.

Sunday, July 30th, 9am - 4pm.
Print approximately 30 coasters per person, $95 + processing fee.
Enrollment limited to five people.

This event is perfect for beginners and seasoned printers alike. All materials included, but it is recommended that you bring a sack lunch.
