Intro to Letterpress

Love the look of letterpress? Do you want to learn  how to use antique wood and lead type to create works of art? This is a great starting class if you've never done printmaking or if you're getting back into it after a time away.

In this 3 hour class, you will peruse our collection of vintage wood and lead typefaces as well as vintage imagery to print a handful of items personalized with a short phrase or monogram.  Each participant gets to print their own projects on a Vandercook #4 proof press as well as the clamshell press. No printing experience required!

This class is appropriate for ages 14 and up, under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  If you are interested in setting up a private session or another date for your group, please email Beth at

Class switches or cancellations must be requested at least 48 hours before the class time. No refunds or reschedules will be issued for no-shows. If the class is canceled by Igloo Letterpress, registrants will be given a chance to reschedule to a different date or request a full refund.
