About the event
Come try letterpress printing! Josh Dannin of Directangle Press in Goffstown, whose own art is currently hanging on the WPM walls, will be in the store demonstrating the letterpress process and folks can drop in anytime between 1 and 4 to learn how to make their own print to bring home. No experience necessary! Free of charge! All welcome!
Lego letterpress includes using lego tiles to create geometric, colorful letterpress prints. Create abstract patterns and representational designs piece by piece, utilizing a variety of lego tiles as building blocks. Learn the basics of inking and printing color-by-color on a letterpress proofing press.
