Like a poster, a broadside is a historical term for a sheet of paper printed on one side and hung publically to advertise events and products or announce the news of the day. This workshop will teach you how to print a combination of wood type and relief image on a letterpress to create a contemporary broadside.
All course prices include basic materials.
