Whether you're new to letterpress or know the lay of a type case like the back of your hand, you'll enjoy playing with AADL’s collection of wood and lead type. AADL staff will be on hand to show you the basics and we'll explore more advanced printing techniques with special guests. No prior experience necessary. Supplies are provided. You're welcome to return every Wednesday evening to work on multi-week projects. This program involves direct handling of lead-based type and is therefore not suitable for small children. • What to bring No registration required All supplies provided 100% free! • Important to know Full details: https://aadl.org/events/upcoming?keys=letterpress
