Join us at Print St. Pete Community Letterpress on Friday, December 14th (7-9pm) for a Print Wrap & Tag workshop, featuring monstera leaf wrapping paper, and letterpress printed gift tags… perfect for all your holiday gift giving.
Instructors Kaitlin Crockett, co-owner of Print St. Pete, and visiting instructor, Catherine Bruger Hayslip, of Nancy Delores & Co, will teach you two relief printmaking techniques- stamp carving, and letterpress printing.
First, Catherine will walk students through hand carving a monstera leaf stamp, including image transfer, using carving tools, inking, & printing. Students will hand print 3 large sheets (36x25) of banana leaf paper with their monstera leaf carvings.
Next, Kaitlin will introduce students to the old-school art of letterpress printing from handset type. Students will see the process of typesetting, inking, and printing on an antique printing press. Each student will print a set of 10 gift tags to take home. An assortment of baker’s twine and other strings will be available to choose from. This workshop is great for beginners!
At the end of the workshop, students will leave with everything to wrap the cutest packages under the tree! 3 sheets of printed banana leaf paper, their hardcarved monstera leaf stamp, and a set of 10 gift tags with string, as well as informational handouts on both types of relief printmaking.
$55/person (Includes a $15 supply fee). Limited spots. Pre-registration & payment are required to reserve your spot.
