Hosted by POST + Angela Ficorelli from Moving Beauty

Saturday May 12th from 1 to 4pm

We are so excited to host Angela and her traveling press for a day of printmaking at POST! Moving Beauty is Angela's design studio, specializing in print design. She has owned and operated her own letterpress for nearly a decade and teaches typography at College for Creative Studies. 

During this 3 hour make and take workshop, we'll be exploring the age-old process of block printing on a letterpress while we create postcards. POSTcards!! Angela will guide the class through proper procedures for design, carving, inking, and the safe operation of the press. Each student will create, cut, and print their own postcards using a linoleum block, traditional carving tools, and a Nolan Proof Press. 

  • No experience necessary
  • This class is open to ages 14+
  • All materials are provided
  • Refreshments will be served!

Please note:

Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Printing ink will stain your clothing!
