Have you been curious about letterpress? This class might be for you!

April 24th 5:30-8:30pm we'll be hosting our first foundations class in the studio. Participants in this introductory course will learn about the anatomy of our print studio, the quirky vocabulary that goes along with it, and take home a few super typographical prints.

We'll be demonstrating lock up technique and you'll be practicing them to create a unique specimen sheet from one of our antique in-house metal or wood fonts.

You'll print enough specimen sheets to swap out with your cohort and take a few home to hang on your refrigerator. And you'll be prepped to take future classes with Tympanum Press!

Please come with a pangram written down on a piece of scrap paper. What's a pangram? It's a unique sentence or phrase with each letter of alphabet like, "A quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

Cost of the course is $60 for a three-hour class and includes open studio time the following Wednesday from 5:30-8:30pm.

No prior experience necessary.
