About the event

About The Workshop

This workshop will include a talk about the history of letterpress printing, a hands-on introduction to some of its elements (for example, block letters), and an opportunity to use a portable poster press. Each participant will leave the workshop with a special workshop-themed poster that they have printed themselves.

Attendees will also get a guided tour of our current special exhibit, A Cardboard History of Blue Ridge Music, which is based on letterpress-printed concert and performance posters and show cards. Following the 2-hour workshop, interested participants are invited to King University to tour the Sign of the George, their working letterpress, and to share some refreshments!

This program goes along with our current special exhibit and is offered in partnership with King University.
