Come make your written words into a beautiful book!

Take the poetry out of your head and use your hands to make a tactile piece of art! My love of books led to letterpress and nothing feels quite like holding a book of your own work. During this day long class, we’ll set poems in metal type and design the cover and binding for a finished chapbook of everyone’s writing. Come with your own poetry, but nothing too long please! Setting type takes time, so poems should be no longer than a page.

The class will go all day, with an hour break for lunch.
