Workshop Description
In this workshop, participants will print pre-set letterpress text on Valentines using the Book Arts Lab’s collection of metal type and ornaments. Participants may embellish their Valentines with collage, hand coloring, calligraphy, and suminagashi (Japanese paper marbling). This workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn about these techniques for the first time, or to build on previous experience with the book arts.
