In this class, you will learn the basics of typography through an engaging printmaking exercise: you will carve some letters of your own! You will discover first hand the concepts which make even the lowliest letters fall into a lovely composition. You will master the basics of setting type in a welcoming, informative setting while learning about the basic history and anatomy of type. You will walk away with any cards or papers you print upon and the handouts you need to continue to do this at home.

Class Size: 12
No materials needed, but be prepared to get ink on your hands!
