Printing Fun – Make an Impression
Join us at The Stratford Perth Museum to learn about the rich history of letterpress and experience this early method of printed communication. This is a one-hour session full of learning and hands-on fun.We will begin with a 15-minute introduction to letterpress printing. For the rest of the hour, participants can try their hand at printing on an antique proof press, and create a keepsake card. Led by Mike Pomeroy, our Print Shop Coordinator, this is an opportunity to learn some of the basics of letterpress printing using an authentic period proof press.
