Handmade @ The Muse: Letterpress Edition

Spend your Saturday morning learning the history of letterpress via the Museum of Boulder's extensive collection of printing plates.

  • Learn the basics of letterpress with Carolyn Sweeney of Black Dog Press and pull your own prints using historic printing plates. She’ll have a proof press on hand for you to witness the magic of letterpress!
  • Peruse the museum’s collection of printing plates from the Daily Camera, including many from the turn of the last century.
  • Leave with six postcards to send to friends and family, or keep them for yourself!
