Letterpress Classes in Northern Delaware (1 Viewer)


These classes are being offered by my friends at Lead Graffiti. They really are amazing designers and printers. I'm not sure, but I may sit in on a couple classes. Anyone interested that is in the area would not be disappointed. I know that we have some Philly folks here and Newark, DE is about 45 minutes from Philly.

If interested, you can sign up at their website. Anyone that is interested and comes from farther away (like from Oakland or something...) can always stay here. I'm only 45 minutes away from Newark, De.

Anyway, their website is http://blog.leadgraffiti.com/

Strangegirl has met them as has Hosho. They are great people.

Super nice folks, and a truly amazing shop. That right there is worth the price of admission! I'm pretty sure there's not a thing about printing they can't teach you or find out for you.


They also said that they would custom tailor classes around other classes. So, if someone came from farther away, they would make a class to, say, typeset, print and bind a book in a couple days.

It is kinda like Frank Lloyd Wright offering Architecture classes to anyone interested... They are artisans.
