In this workshop, participants will experiment with folding paper by learning a single-sheet folded book technique. Then, through a writing exercise that responds to the folded book structure, we will create source material from which to draw for a short collaborative poem. Printing this poem as a limited edition broadside, participants will learn typesetting and other letterpress basics.


Workshop will take place at

Team Nerd Letterpress

830 S. 5th Street


No previous letterpress experience is necessary.

Space is limited, so please register online, or call 414-263-5001.
