ADULTS: Learn the Lost Art of Letterpress this Summer

Photoshop is cool, but letterpress is old school cool. Learn how to design and make your own letterhead, greeting cards, party invitations, and more. We’ll teach you how to hand-set type and images, and you'll learn how to print on different letterpresses, including our historic Vandercook Press and other equipment we inherited 25 years ago from Los Angeles’ famed Woman’s Building — the west coast hub of the ’70s and ’80s Feminist Art scene that luminaries like Faith Wilding, Barbara Kruger, and Betye Saar once called home.


Your instructor? Renowned letterpress artist and educator Denise El-Hoss has over 20 year of deep, hands-on experience to pass onto you. She’s run our program for over 10 years. This is a rare and wonderful opportunity for the adventurous hobbyist and practicing artist alike. Everyone is welcomed in the Letterpress Studio (adults 18+ only, please).

We still have spaces available in some of our Letterpress classes (see below). Our Summer Studio session for adults begins July 10.
