Letterpress Printmaking

Letterpress Printmaking classes offered for all skill levels at the Adrian Center for the Arts.

Want to get your hands into the world of letterpress? Here are some ways to do it!

 Workshops and Classes

From introduction to intermediate and beyond, we offer workshops and classes in various printmaking methods, including letterpress, linoleum block printing and special projects. For information on current classes please visit “Classes/Letterpress”.

Private Instruction

If you need instruction or just some hands-on press help for your print project, individuals or up to three people at a time can arrange for private sessions. Private instruction must be booked in blocks of a minimum of two hours.


Studio Time Rental

If you’re an experienced printmaker or someone who has taken a class with us or had private instruction sessions to be proficient, we can offer you affordable, exclusive printing time on any of our presses for your custom work and special print projects. Press rental sessions must be booked in blocks of a minimum of two hours, and setup and cleanup should be taken into account when booking your time. Studio rental can be booked to use the letterpress platen press(es), the proof press, and the Vandercook No.4 bed press.


Open Studio

Open Studio is an opportunity for experienced printers or anyone who has taken a class with ACA Letterpress to take advantage of affordable, evening time for working on individual projects or experimenting with what you’ve learned in our studio. Open Studios will be announced periodically through the website.


Letterpress/Print Residency

Letterpress offers short residencies to printers and other artists interested in producing print editions in our studio.
