Sat. October 28th 9-12:30 (Calligraphy)
Sat. November 4th time TBD (Letterpress)
Laura Capp (of Postscript in Ashland, NE) and I will be leading a two-part workshop which will not only give you a foundation in uppercase Copperplate and an introduction to monogram design, but will also expose you to the basics of letterpress printing, all of which will allow you to walk away with 24 flat letterpress-printed notecards bearing your custom monogram!
Omaha calligrapher and lettering artist Cheryl Dyer will lead the first workshop teaching students the component strokes of the uppercase Copperplate alphabet and will walk you through designing your very own monogram. In the week between, we'll order plates of the monograms to print from, and the following Saturday, you will sign up for a one-hour window to come join Laura Capp, proprietor of Postscript and letterpress printer, for a brief introduction to the basics of printing on a Vandercook. Together, you will letterpress print your monogram onto flat notecards, AND you'll get to select decorative paper from the shop to cut into envelope liners for a stack of truly gorgeous and special custom notecards. This workshop is capped at 10 students. All supplies are included in the cost of tuition.
