Say it Loud! Letterpress Broadside Posters

"Freedom of the press is only guaranteed to those who own one."

Before letterpress was Martha Stewart's choice for wedding invitations, it was used as a way to share information. With a printing press and moveable type, you could say anything and share it, in physical form and send it out to the masses. Like a letterpress printed tweet!

Learn about letterpress and handsetting wood and lead type in while making a broadside poster with Hope. Together participants will plan a design, set it, print and take home a few prints each. All materials are included..
