letterpress workshop: thoughts

Now that my days have been freed up, I'm mulling over the idea of having a letterpress workshop of some kind. I've listed some reasons why I should do this sooner than later.

-I'm seeing an increase of requests for workshops and little resources around the city to fulfill them

-I'd like to see the craft community grow, if there's an interest, I should help where I can

-I get to meet new people who are also interested in letterpress

-I get to spread the letterpress curiosity

-I get an excuse to print and make a mess of my printing station

-I get to talk about letterpress (my husband can only take so much)

-Participants would come to my home, making it a unique experience - a peek into my mini workroom

So, would you be interested in seeing my table top press in action? Or better yet, have a go at the press yourself? Let me know by commenting below. But if you're shy or want to be notified of an upcoming workshop please email me at snapandtumble@gmail.com.

I would love a chance to attend one of your workshops! I work mostly with hand printing, but it would be amazing to see a letterpress in action!
