Cards & Cookies – Holiday Letterpress Workshop

Published November 9, 2012

Join the FSU Facility for Arts Research’s Small Craft Advisory Press for a Holiday Card Workshop November 29, 2012 at 6:00pm.

Ease into the season with a cheery gathering and leave with a set of cards to share with friends and loved ones. Cards will be printed on SCAP’s letterpresses throughout the event – assist in the printing process or pick your paper and design to have a set created for you as you mingle. FAR artists Denise Bookwalter, Ashley Ivey, Allison Milham, and Michelle Ray will offer unique designs for the cards in festive tones.

This short workshop is intended as a basic introduction to letterpress and pleasant seasonal gathering. The $10 workshop fee includes three cards. Additional card and envelope sets of ten will be available for purchase at $20.  Reserve your spot using the form below.


Registration is now closed.
