Christmas Card Letterpress Workshop with Type Tom
About the Event
During this hands-on session, you will learn some of the history of letterpress, and get inky using a selection of Tom’s vintage letterpress wood type and antique illustration blocks. By the end of the workshop you will have created a selection of your very own custom Letterpress Christmas cards to send to your loved ones or just keep them for yourself!
