Event Description

Join Danielle Ameling, the gifted designer and owner of Iron Leaf Press, for an afternoon at the beautiful studio at Three Pines Farm.  In this workshop, students will create their own custom letterpress stationery set, all while learning the history and principles of this beautiful form of relief printing dating from the 15th century.  Class attendees will work with a platen-style, Kelsey model tabletop press, one of three antique presses Danielle currently uses in her printmaking studio.  Each participant will print and take home a set of 10 stationery notecards and envelopes customized with type or an image of your choosing (with gift packaging available), so perfectly unique for gifting this holiday season, or to keep for yourself!  Please register by Dec. 7th at www.threepinesfarm.org.  Must be 16+ years old to attend.
