Letterpress Print + Watercolor your own Easter Eggs


DATE: Friday, March 29th

TIME: 6pm-8pm

Reserve your spot by pre-paying online. Sign-up closes 24 hours prior to event in order to have a headcount for preparing supplies, food and beverages. 


This workshop combines letterpress printing and watercolor! You'll have the opportunity to letterpress print a decorative egg design on to cotton paper on one of our platen presses. We will then watercolor them using a 3-color palette.

We will be working with three Gansai Tambi watercolors: Lemon Yellow, Cherry Blossom Pink and Cobalt Turquoise Light and experimenting with mixing secondary colors.

If you'd like to cut your eggs out, hole punch them and string them up as ornaments, we will have supplies on hand for that as well.

Included in workshop
  • A brief overview of the basics of letterpress printing and the workings of our platen press.

  • Each participant will have time on the press to make their own prints.

  • We will have pre-printed eggs ready to watercolor, as only one person can print at a time.
