Have you ever fantasized about having a small letterpress in your home? This workshop will cover the basics of letterpress printing with antique lead type on a Chandler & Price Pilot tabletop platen press. Students will learn how to set lead type, operate the tabletop press, troubleshoot and clean and maintain the press. Each participant will hand set a few lines of text of their own choosing and print a small edition (10-15 prints).
