Letterpress Lab

Wednesday September 13, 2017: 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Secret Lab

Learn the basics of letterpress printing using handset lead type!

Workshop participants will learn how to compose, lock-up, and print a small project on AADL’s vintage Kelsey letterpresses. Letterpress Labs are lead by library staff and guest instructors from U-M's Wolverine Press. Follow along with our scheduled activity or plan your own project—you’re the designer!

This program involves direct handling of lead-based type and is therefore not suitable for small children.
