Next Stop on the Letterpress Quest

So…after doing some research, I discovered Pyramid Atlantic in Silver Spring, a non-profit arts center that offers instruction in letterpress.

I spoke with a woman named Moira, who is going to be teaching me to letterpress in two weeks! My mother wants to learn as well, so hopefully Moira will be good enough to make the one-on-one instruction one-on-two so that learning letterpress and making the invites can be a mother-daughter project. Which would be really great — some of my favorite childhood memories are of art projects with Mom, so it would be fun to do some again now that I’m all grown up!

Once I learn how to actually use the press, I can rent studio time, and letterpress our own invites! Plus, this kind of kills two birds with one stone — Mom and I have always talked about designing stationary (my mother is an artist), so this would be another skill to help make that a reality!
