When we meet people at shows, so many of you are curious about learning more about letterpress printing, so why not come to our studio for a letterpress workshop? But doesn’t a workshop sound like we’re going to put you to work? We think learning about letterpress and tinkering with type should be fun. And that’s why we decided to host Pome Playshops instead. We’re keeping it simple and are pleased to offer:
Do you have a masterpiece inside you waiting to come out. Why not express yourself by creating your own limited edition art print. In the end, you’ll take home 3-5 copies of your original art poster, suitable for framing! In our introduction playshop, you’ll learn:
This 4.5-hour introductory workshop will introduce you to our Vandercook SP15 and print posters up to a maximum size of 12″ x 18″
+ HST per person
This 2.5-hour introductory playshop will introduce you to our Showcard Mini press and produce prints up to a maximum size of 6″ x 9″
+ HST per person
All supplies for both are included. In either playshop, we can only work with two participants to ensure you each have enough time with the press. If you really, really, really want to do this with two of your besties, let us know and we’ll figure something out.
Send an email to let us know you’re interested and we’ll work with you to pick a date that fits your schedule. After you receive confirmation from us, we will bill you the full amount via paypal and send you directions to our studio. Please read our terms and conditions below.
Oakville just off the Third Line exit of the QEW/403. If you’re taking the GO Train, we can make arrangements to pick you up @ Bronte Stn.
Let us know if you have an idea for a playshop. Send us an email and we’ll talk.
By signing up for one of our Playshops, you agree to the following terms and conditions.
What should I bring to class? Bring yourself, your creativity, and a positive attitude. We’ll provide the type, ink and paper.
What if I have a specific project in mind? For our Introduction to Letterpress class, we think it’s best to focus on getting to know the tools of the trade, learning the process and having fun. We suggest thinking about printing your favourite short quote or phrase.
What should I wear to class? Make sure you wear clothing that’s comfortable and won’t be ruined if a bit of ink gets on it. We have aprons, but we don’t suggest wearing anything expensive. Long hair should be tied back.
