Letterpress Cards with Hebrew Type

Mazel Tov (Congratulations)! Shalom (Peace)! Ahavah (Love)! Experience letterpress printing while making cards with MCBA’s new collection of Hebrew wood type. This in-person workshop is designed for those new to letterpress printing with a desire to build skills and community through playful experimentation with Jewish-themed designs! Text and simple backgrounds will be pre-designed with type locked up in presses in advance to maximize printing time and allow for the basic concepts of printing to be introduced. Participants will have some creative input with ink colors and may select and hand-set a word or short phrase (as a group) in wood type to print. Participants can choose from a selection of cards at the end of the workshop and all will come away with ten to fifteen cards and envelopes.

All skill levels welcome
